Why I’m running
I've experienced first-hand the broken systems of Aotearoa. I've had to fight to access the basics: healthcare, housing and education. I'm running to better represent my communities in parliament; the life long renters, the struggling students and the people rising up to fight the status quo. The Greens know Aotearoa and its people can thrive when we have the right support, and I'm prepared to voice our needs, your needs, and get the ball rolling.
I have a history of volunteering and activism, and bring a huge range of lived experiences to any table, from supporting indigenous sovereignty and climate justice movements, to leadership roles in my communities. I've been a minimum wage worker for retail, customer service, hospo, and managed campaigns and advised on social media. As a queer, disabled young woman of colour, I know that the system is built against us. I'm here to enact as much change as I possibly can; for all of us.
