Born in 1998 to two parents who worked in healthcare, I have always had a strong sense of community. Growing up, I worked several jobs - loading dirt into people’s cars, gardening, flipping burgers, and sitting at reception desks. Having graduated from the University of Auckland with a BA/LLB, I now work as a law clerk. When I’m not studying, you can find me at the gym or swimming. When I get the chance, I love to cook lots of food for my friends. I first became involved with the ACT Party at university after seeing principles such as free speech, and freedom of association come under attack.

Over the years, I have watched my generation be promised by politicians everything from affordable housing to safe streets. But years later, nothing has been delivered. I am standing because I want New Zealand to be a place where young, ambitious people want to live and work.
