He is drawn to NATO as it is a politico-military alliance based on the principles of democracy, individual liberty, and the rule of law. He is invested in raising awareness among students of the vital role that the Canadian Armed Forces play in Canadian security and society. He hopes he can engage students in a conversation about NATO and the armed forces by organizing events like the Global Model NATO Summit.
