About This Episode

While the election season is on and everyone is debating what party is going to win. We are sure many of us are inspired by seeing some of these fantastic people advocating for their party and trying to make the future of our country better. We thought how great would that be if a migrant MP herself from the current government could give us a crash course on how to kick start your political career in New Zealand. 🤩😇

Super excited to collaborate with Priyanca Radhakrishnan , Labour List MP based in Maungakiekie, Auckland for Behind the Dreams Episode 11. Priyanca and Rachit will discuss, what are some first steps to enter a political party, qualities you need become a good politician, what it’s like to live a life as a Member of Parliament and, what is the best and worst part of being in this profession. 😁✨ Priyanca also shared her journey on how she got into politics, her (never revealed before) career secrets, a story of her mentors and highlights of Parliament life.
