Hope Ace is January’s #ChangeMaker. She is a passionate young woman from our Hamilton community, who is now studying Law and Human Rights with a minor in Political Science at Ottawa’s Carleton University.
Hope is passionate about working to make change on issues Indigenous communities face, promoting gender equality, inspiring youth leadership and helping to create more representation of women within industries dominated by me.
She is already making her mark and is involved in many community outreach programs and inspires others to take action to conquer injustices within her community. On International Women’s Day, Hope took the Hamilton West—Ancaster— Dundas seat in the House of Commons as a Daughter’s of the Vote delegate where she spoke about issues that matter to her and our community. Hope also spoke at the Senate of Canada this past year about engaging and encouraging youth to see themselves in leadership roles.
Hope will continue to work hard to conquer injustice, inspire youth to use their voices and encourage other young women to be leaders. She aims to attend law school upon completing her undergraduate studies.
