Senior Kiwi Moneymaker

“I’d say I’m most passionate about LGBTQ+ rights, especially Trans issues recently. Discovering my identity as queer and non-binary over these past few years was really important for me and I feel empathetic towards those who can’t be open about their sexuality or gender identity because of the repercussions they could likely face. I want to educate myself and others on acceptance of different identities and supporting everyone despite the ‘norm’.”

“Even though I have anxieties and regularly worry about these issues, my partner and close friends help brighten my mood and give me the incentive to get through each day. They really make me feel loved and I’m beyond grateful for the support they give me. They encourage me to be my true self and love me for me, which my younger self could have never imagined possible.”
