My story is entwined with thousands of diverse communities across the Western Metro region.
As the child of Vietnamese boat people, I grew up here in the Western suburbs, among migrant communities escaping war and persecution to raise a generation of new Australians. My parents survived a journey that claimed the lives of over a million other boat people in the ‘80s and ‘90s.
I am a daughter of the West and my strong sense of social justice found a home when I joined the Greens in 2006.
My heart is in leading change through organising communities and protecting the public good for generations to come.
I have already achieved outcomes for Footscray Hospital, Sunshine High and restoring Stony creek after the disastrous West Footscray Fire. But there is still so much work to be done.
