In Episode 9 of Ellected, host Sarah Elder-Chamanara welcomes Calgary City Council hopeful and former Olympian Jasmine Mian.
Sarah and Jasmine talk about women running for council and Jasmine’s background in sports and psychology and how she’s applying it to her campaign. Jasmine shares what she’s learned about talking about herself, and her experiences doorknocking with her husband and people defaulting to the assumption that it’s him running and not her.
“If you don’t tell your story, other people will tell it for you.”
Jasmine Mian has a Master’s degree in Psychology and Public Policy with a focus on municipal issues. Jasmine is a former Olympian representing Canada in women’s wrestling in the 2016 Olympics, and is currently running for Calgary City Council in Ward 3.
