Bio: 
24 year old recent university graduate looking to work in human rights. Very keen to make a difference and believe that the rights of all humans is imperative to promote justice and the well-being of society. Every individual, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation, has the right to feel secure and safe and have access to the same rights as every other individual. I have experience working as a Care Worker with victims of domestic violence. I have seen first-hand how the lives of those who are victims of domestic violence can be changed and destroyed, and why it is so important that we talk about this. Every five days a woman dies due to domestic violence, and this is rarely spoken about nor addressed. We need to start addressing important issues and promoting the rights of all individuals. Have written an Honour's thesis on gender inequality and the financial return to education. Found that women who have the same level of educational attainment as their male counterparts do earn less over their lifetime. In my thesis, I suggest policies that could be implemented by the Australian Federal Government in order to achieve gender equality. While I am very passionate about women's rights, I believe that the rights of other minority groups are equally as important. There is nothing I want more than to work in Human Rights and to make a difference to the lives of these people.
