THE MI­GRANT: HONEY RASALAN, 40, MAN­AGER AT MI­GRANT AC­TION TRUST.

Central Leader - - OUT & ABOUT -

Rasalan came to New Zealand from the Philip­pines 10 years ago and said the ex­pe­ri­ences she had as a new mi­grant have shaped her ap­proach to pol­i­tics.

Rasalan be­gan her ca­reer in New Zealand as a vol­un­teer for Mi­grant Ac­tion Trust and has been work­ing there ever since.

Many mi­grants come here with skills that are not put to good use as they can’t find work, she said. Rasalan has been po­lit­i­cally ac­tive since mov­ing to Auck­land and said she likes dif­fer­ent as­pects of each po­lit­i­cal party.
