My Manifesto

Aim : To leave the world better than I found it, two coffees at a time 

  1. To 'show people how' and create independence rather than doing it for them

  2. Take on projects to work with offenders to help reduce re-offending

  3. Take on projects that have social impact 

  4. Continue working with young people to ensure less people rely on welfare, become homeless or break the law as adults

  5. Continue the mission to help everyone I meet to love what they do for a living

  6. Never use paper when there's an alternative

  7. Oh, and refrain from using paper cups in coffee shops and pull out my collapsible Pokito cup instead

  8. To consume cake everyday #AllRoadsLeadToCake 

  9. To continue to learn from my great travelling adventures

My Beliefs

Prison reform - I work on projects that will help break the re-offending cycle.  Often, prison is the least best place for most offenders.

Education - everyone should have the same chance at education. People should leave school equipped with skills to forge a career, a good CV and the confidence to do what they want to do.

Welfare - make it fair. Encourage people to work, even if they find employment for a day and let them volunteer as much as they can without cancelling benefits (at huge tax payers expense). Treat people needing social housing with respect and encourage them to work on all their other needs in order to be independent.
