I am a social scientist, activist, carer and gardener, born and raised in Brisbane. I've worked as a teacher, researcher and community development worker, and I'm soon to finish my PhD on community responses to climate change.
I have lived in South Brisbane for the past four years, and went to school at Brisbane State High School. I love this part of town, but me and my neighbours are seeing the area changing rapidly, as the interests of property developers are put above those of the community and the environment.
I am running to be the state representative for South Brisbane because I'm passionate about the future of Queensland, as a fair, sustainable and progressive state. A place where our communities and precious natural places are protected from the impact of over-development. Where our representatives make decisions guided by a sense of social justice, rather than corporate donations. Where a transition to a sustainable economy underway. Where the basic needs of everyone are met, and our diversity and creativity can thrive.
