Last week I met Tanya Plibersek at a dinner with fourteen other ‘young progressive leaders’. She is such an strong role model. It was part of a two day programme run by the Chifley Research Centre. I had an incredible couple of days, and I took so much away from it. We listened to and met some of Australia’s top progressive political thinkers. And it was wonderful to make friends with other young politics geeks from around the country. I feel super lucky that I was selected for such an exciting programme. And holy shit I met Tanya.
