Public Policy is Everywhere
Public Policy matters to me because it touches all aspects of life- it truly is everywhere! In order to make decisions, we need to be aware of how our choices (or in this case, our policy recommendations) impact others. I was drawn to public policy because it forces us to think outside of ourselves and incorporate various perspectives in order to make recommendations that uplift and incorporate the views and voices of all. - Maria Castrillon MPP’23
