HON. MARCI IEN
Minister for Women and Gender Equality and Youth
Former Broadcast Journalist
“I was scared to death. I knew after having conversations with my family, and in particular my kids, that we were going to do this, that I was going to do this, but I was scared because of course scared of the unknown. I interviewed politicians. I was never going to be one except now I am. But a huge leap. Yes, absolutely worth it. Am I learning and leading and part of change and getting to have conversations with young people and women and gender diverse people across this country and develop policy? Absolutely. Would I want to be anywhere else right now? Absolutely not.”
