"Diversity" - Annual Dinner's Theme

Ric Carlyon - Wednesday, October 05, 2016

Melissa Lee, MP, epitomises diversity. 

She was born in Korea, grew up in Malaysia, moved to Australia and settled in New Zealand. In her maiden speech to Parliament in 2008 she spoke in Korean, Maori and English.

Ms Lee is the first Korean woman to win an election outside her homeland. 


Fitting, indeed, for Lee, now Parliamentary Private Secretary of Ethnic Communities. She’s also Chairperson of the Commerce Select Committee and a member of the Education and Science Committee. 

Not short of the odd controversial stand and quote on current affairs, the List MP based in Mt Albert, Melissa Lee is the guest speaker at this year’s Justice of the Peace Dinner. with the topic:
