Hibo Mohamed Liberal
Hi! My name is Hibo [hee-BOW], and I'm running to be your Liberal representative in Edmonton Strathcona. Fourteen years ago, my family and I settled in Edmonton to build a new life and create a new home in our adopted country of Canada.
The kindness and generosity that my family were shown inspired a passion to give back. I volunteered throughout high school, at the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies & Services at the University of Alberta, with the Somali Canadian Cultural Society of Edmonton, and more. From a young age, I have long fostered a commitment to equity and social justice.
Supporting women and diverse communities is vital for me. In my work with ParityYEG ensuring gender diversity in all levels of government, and in my work with the YWCA Edmonton, I saw how supporting women in our communities is what makes us stronger. As your Member of Parliament, I will focus on efforts towards childcare, ending gender-based violence, and supporting an inclusive economic recovery that benefits everyone.
In 2020 I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Art & Design. I am also a celebrated professional artist, and in my craft I came to understand the difficulties faced by artists and small businesses, especially during the pandemic.
Edmonton Strathcona needs a representative that personally understands the struggles faced by our neighbours and friends, and who has a proven track record of community service with a strong vision for the future.
