Why I’m running
I want to contribute to making New Zealand a truly egalitarian nation, where everyone is able to access decent, secure work; good quality healthcare and a great education that enables them to success; a warm, dry home to live in and where everyone feels safe at home, at work and on the streets. I believe everyone should be able to live with dignity.
I have lived and worked in Aotearoa New Zealand and overseas. I have spent my working life advocating on behalf of groups of people whose voices are often unheard – victim/survivors of domestic violence and migrant workers who have been exploited. I have also worked closely with different ethnic communities in my role as the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Minister for Ethnic Communities. I'm started my working life in Maungakiekie and passionate about the local communities I serve.
