(Community Recognition Statement, 3 March 2020, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)
On behalf of the Sydney Electorate, I commend the highly motivated and engaged Year 10 work experience student Ariana Wang, who lives in the Sydney electorate and studies at Sydney Girls High School. Ariana spent a week with me and my office, learning about the role of Members of Parliament, the issues we face in the Sydney electorate and some of the ways that MPs can help get action and help for their communities. She was excited to see the Parliament including the Legislative Assembly Chamber and some of the behind-the-scenes work that goes into making laws and setting policies and programs for NSW. Ariana demonstrated well developed understanding of many local issues and showed her keenness to make the world a fairer place and not leave anyone behind. She asked probing questions and wanted to understand why something was possible or could not be done. Ariana represents a positive and energetic new generation of actively involved young people and is an excellent ambassador for Sydney Girls High. I am sure she will be an inspiring and progressive future leader.
