Personal

I work to get more youth involved in government and volunteer work. I lead Auckland Council's youth engagement in the Orakei ward and advise the Councillor for the ward. Outside of Council I am a member of the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation Youth Council and have sat on youth engagement strategy review panels for both Auckland Council and the national Ministry of Social Development. I am currently working on strategies to implement a youth participatory budgeting programme in Auckland.
