The federal parliament is set to look different, with diverse candidates winning seats in the election. It points to the importance of reflecting the communities they represent.

This election will be remembered for the record number of independent women candidates who successfully unseated Liberal and National opponents in conservative strongholds.

Ms Le says she reflects the cultural diversity of the electorate she's representing.

Erin Chew is a co-founder of the Asian Australian Alliance advocacy network.
