Episode #27 - Joshua Wolfe
My guest this week is an exceptional guy, a very good friend and a former colleague! Joshua Wolfe was the very first intern we ever had at our riding office. I remember his first day like it was yesterday: a shy young kid, freshly out of university, looking completely lost and scared and who seemed to hate having picked that particular day to start working with us. His first day at the office coincided with an important announcement and press conference we’d been preparing with a cabinet Minister. In retrospect, perhaps there wasn’t a better way to be thrown into this gig than to be shown exactly what this job is all about and what the expectations are! Josh proved not only to be incredibly intelligent and efficient, but he also quickly adapted and developed an impressive political acuity. Needless to say, we kept him onboard once his internship was over. He later went on to work in advocacy and build an impressive network of political staffers, cabinet senior advisors, Ministers and even the Premiers themselves! He now works in a field that he has always been passionate about: political engagement. He works with different professionals, community and social groups, schools and other leaders with one main purpose: getting our citizens, and primarily our youth, engaged in our society’s political, social and community affairs. I really hope you enjoy this conversation!
