I have worked for various companies, after completing my master's in information technology. I started my own business in software development and later developed many products and brands in Australia and around the world. I have volunteered for the Red Cross and Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC). I have a desire to help others, which led me into politics. I ran for the Wyndham Council election as well as the Federal Election in 2019 for the Lalor Division. To enable affordability and bring happiness in the most effective and organized way possible, I have dedicated myself to public service. Considering our current situation, many families lost their livelihood and precious lives during these challenging times of Covid19. To create a stronger Australia and lead change, I decided to resign from the public sector and run in the 2022 Federal Elections. I believe in the strengths of our nation and together we can overcome the challenges of growth and well-being. My vision is to make Australia a stronger economy in the region and proactively identify community needs and work towards achieving them with unity and strength.
On this journey, I have met many individuals, business owners, farmers, and migrating families. These interactions have played a crucial role in understanding the root causes of problems that affect the community. Once I started to share my experiences on an individual level. Looking at a wider spectrum of problems. I have observed that in most of these issues the root cause affecting the quality of life is affordability. I believe this needs to be addressed properly and through political reforms.
I believe that education is the mirror through which we can see the present and the future of our country. It is a key tool for any flourishing society. I had seen my father’s commitment and dedication to educating kids. Since he was a community elder, he worked with families and schools. He helped to realize the importance of learning for the growth and development of a community and achieving full potential. I understand the importance of resources to access quality education and how it is affected due to a lack of resources. I believe proper infrastructure, a safe environment, and the latest resources should not be a hurdle for our kids in gaining knowledge and pursuing higher education. Upskilling the current workforce will make us self-reliant for current and future jobs through integrated apprenticeship programs to create more jobs and business opportunities.
