My mother moved to Canada from Italy before I was born. She — like many people from all around the world — made Canada her home and was determined to build a career here. 

It’s a pretty common story. 

It’s also an amazing and beautiful story — because that’s what makes Canada such a great country: the fact that so many of us, from so many places around the world, have come here to live, work and raise a family. 

Here in Durham, I’ve met hundred of families who share that exact same history — and who share my family’s determination and passion for building a future. 

That determination led me to Ryerson University to study Business, Politics and Governance. And my passion for public service led me to become an intern at the constituency office of Nathaniel Erskine-Smith. 

That’s where I learned how vital MPs are — how they need to put the interests of all their constituents first, how they need to keep their feet on the ground in their communities, stand up for their communities, and how they need to fight to build those communities up. 

I’m also passionate about sports. We have a lot of soccer teams here in Durham, and I’m proud to have coached youth soccer. I also love curling — so I’ve become the youngest member of the Ontario Curling Association and a huge promoter of the game. 

I’m also determined to make a difference. In 2018 I ran as a candidate for city council in North Oshawa, because I was passionate out building a better future for families, seniors and businesses. 

 I’m young, I’m energetic, I’m passionate and I’m determined to do my best to work hard and represent everyone here in Durham. 

I believe in building a better future for all Canadians.
