I believe that every New Zealander has the right to a lifetime of opportunity, security, and prosperity. 

I'm passionate about education because it opens doors and allows everyone the opportunity to reach their full potential. As the Minister of Education I will continue to work towards a quality, free, public education system for all New Zealanders.

I'm honoured to serve as the Member of Parliament for Rimutaka. The Hutt Valley is my home, it's where I grew up, and I'm committed to giving back to the community that has given so much to me.
