Maia Knight is a student who is currently studying Journalism and Political Science at Carleton University. She has proven her ability to lead as the President of the Eco Council and as the Eco Representative at Earl Haig Secondary School. She lived in the riding for most of her childhood, while attending elementary school and high school, and has a deep fondness for the area.
Maia's interest in Politics stems from her concern about the environment and has always strived to better the community around her. She fears that the effects of climate change will cause irreversible damage and her future children will never know what it was like to live in a clean world.
Maia believes that Canada is in the position to take a leading role in combating climate change and integrate renewable energy as the sole source of energy. She hopes to be apart of the movement towards a more sustainable future.
Maia is passionate about youth involvement in politics and hopes that young people take a more active role in politics.
