As a Tamil, when I first came to Holroyd I was attracted by the vibrancy and diversity of the area. The suburbs of Wentworthville, Pendle Hill, Girraween and Toongabbie, where I live, are a fabulous mix of the cultures that have enriched Australia. Those words ‘from all the lands on Earth we come” really does describe our community. I have had a long involvement in refugee advocacy and this was recognised quite recently when the Australian Refugee Council awarded me the National Refugee Community Worker Award.
Like a growing number of Greens I am a small business owner. I am also a fitness personal trainer. I was the candidate for The Greens in the NSW State Election of 2015.
