First elected South Sudanese Australian politician in WA State parliament

"I was not expecting to win because I was running on a third seat in North Metro which was already held by Liberal candidate. However our Labor team did a good job to support me as we were working as a team and we eventually won". Said Ayor.

"It was not my dream to be become a politician but I registered a Labor member in WA branch and I begin to volunteer on election campaign and in 2020, I was approached by Western Australia Labor's President proposed and encouraged me to nominate to run for the third seat in North Metro". She said. 

"I would encourage our young people to go to school and skilled themselves for good cause because you never know what lies ahead of you but when you are patience and do the right things success is on way". Australia is our home forever because when you look at my story it speaks volume. For instance, now that I am elected into the Western Australia upper house or Legislative Council I am not only going to be there to represent South Sudanese or African or Migrants and refugees but more importantly I am there to represent everyone in my electorate of North Metro". She continued.
