Why I’m running
I want to see a party that has a plan that will work for all New Zealanders, not just a wishlist like we see with the status quo. While it's true that some funding is needed to solve some of our significant issues, I am tired of seeing money being thrown at problems with the assumption that money alone will solve them. If a plan is not well thought out, whether it be education, law and order, health, infrastructure, etc., that plan cannot succeed, regardless of money or good intentions.
After graduating high school, I was awarded a Pacific Peoples Entrance Scholarship at Otago University to study a Bachelor of Arts, to major in political science and international relations. In the end, I did not accept that scholarship, and decided instead to attend the Auckland University of Technology and to study event management. In 2017, I was honoured to be elected to the Whau local youth Board, and served in that role for two years.
