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