Claire Edwards

Claire Edwards is a fourth generation Edmontonian and proud of the city she calls home! She's in her third year of Honours Political Science at the University of Alberta and president of the Student Network for Advocacy and Public Policy (SNAPP) - a student organization that works to "put policies on picket signs." With a particular interest in social justice, she's involved with a number of organizations in Edmonton, including the City of Edmonton Youth Council, Amnesty International, the Downtown Edmonton Community League, the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights and the national Student Voice Initiative. Claire hopes that her participation in Next Up will give her the tangible skills she needs to create powerful social change both at home and abroad.
