“When I first started University, I was really interested in sports, but I ended up taking up one politics class and it just blossomed from there. I learned about my family being involved heavily in South Australia in the political arena.

Hopefully one day I will get into politics and be a voice of change, not just for my people but for those people who don’t have a voice.”
