I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned, but I am very interested in politics. I spend far too much time tracking what is happening in the U.S. and as we are in election season now in Canada, I’m spending a ton of time tracking what is happening locally for Members of Parliament and federally.
I often think that I’d enjoy participating in politics as I have strong opinions and views on things and while I’d likely never be elected to a position due to how strong my opinions are, I would be interested in sharing those opinions with others.
I don’t even know how to get started in the space, but I can’t shake the feeling that I could add a unique perspective.
What makes people get into politics? How do people get started outside of taking a Political Science degree in school?
I’ll definitely have to take time to learn more about it. I’m also hoping that if I reach out to local politicians that I might get some insight from them. If you have any insights into how people start in politics, or are interested in discussing the much taboo subject, please feel free to reach out.
