Because I wanted to be a part of a team of youth that works with our Member of Parliament to find ways to connect with members of our community. I think this committee is a great representation of Dartmouth and Cole Harbour as well.

I love going out and meeting people in the many organizations that are in this community. I also love going to the library as well as Alderney Landing and the Dartmouth North Food Center, and the Community Center.
What is your favourite restaurant/meal in Dartmouth-Cole Harbour?
Oh boy! I love all kinds of food! So anything from La Cucina to Steak and Stein in Dartmouth, to the Palladium in Cole Harbour! I love sushi places like Sushi Nami Royale and there is a great little Vietnamese restaurant in Dartmouth on Wyse Road called Pho Hoang Minh. It’s delicious!
My photo is me in front of the Welcome to Dartmouth North sign because I feel it represents what my community is all about. Not just welcoming new people into our community, but we also welcome the opinions and voices of everyone, old, young and every voice in between!
