Deborah Drever

 

Deborah Drever was born and raised in Calgary, and is proud to still call it home. She attends Mount Royal University working towards a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology.

Drever lives with her grandmother and has a direct understanding of the pressure seniors and students are under to make ends meet in a city that is increasingly more expensive to live and work in.

Throughout university she has been actively involved in human rights activism - actively supporting the on-campus Women’s Centre and joining with feminists and allies to improve Calgary’s music scene.

Drever is working towards shaping the province to one that responds to the needs of all Albertans and a government that listens to Albertans. She wants to prioritize health care, affordance post-secondary education and ensuring quality classrooms, not big tax breaks for large, well-off corporations.

Learning the power and value of community and volunteerism at an early age Drever has volunteered at various not for profit organizations around Calgary since the age of eight. Her volunteer contributions include The Calgary Folk Music Festival, the Global Fest International Fireworks and Multicultural Event, as well as canvassing for Heart and Stoke, diabetes, and cancer foundations.
