Sheldon's History

Sheldon was born and raised in North Bay, Ontario by his single mother Julie. Sheldon was taught computers by his uncle Eric at PC Solutions and was so interested in computers that he wrote his CompTIA IT Professional exam while still in high school. Sheldon moved to Ottawa when he was 19 for work and while he was there he had a close friend named Hannah who introduced him to politics by inviting Sheldon to her Political Science courses at the University of Ottawa. Sheldon learned a great deal about international politics. So much so that in 2014 at the age of 21 he decided to run for North Bay City Council. Sheldon was running for a council seat at large and garnered the most votes which gave him the appointment of Deputy Mayor, Budget Chief and chair of General Government. Sheldon is an extremely motivated individual, he lived in poverty for his youth and swore that he would rise above and help people anyway he could. At the age of 18 Sheldon Purchased his first rental property and started his company On The Spot Computer Repair to which he re-branded in 2013 to Computer Doctors.
