Citizenship Ceremonies

May 13, 2022 | Electorate, News, Parliament

I have been incredibly lucky recently to have been invited to a number of citizenship ceremonies hosted by local councils in my electorate. After two long years of postponing such events these citizenship ceremonies feel even that little bit more special. Each time there is excitement in the air. Family and friends all come together to celebrate their loved ones being finally recognised as citizens of Australia. These ceremonies offer time to reflect on our fortunes as Australians. We all come from different backgrounds, different cultures and different ways of life; this makes us all richer. As members of Parliament we get to bring our communities’ voices, experiences and issues to this place. In this role we get to learn a lot about what it means to be an Australian today. Being an Aussie is about mateship, authenticity and respect. Congratulations again to the new citizens in Boroondara, Knox and Manningham. I feel very privileged to have been able to welcome you all as citizens of Australia.
