Statement from Jodie Gateman
"I believe in making a difference. My skill set and experience will allow me to give back to this community.
As a child, I wanted to be a princess. However, my princess was always changing the world and giving back. I believe that people are the basis of society and change must start with the representation of those people.
When you think back to great leaders, which ones do you remember? Which ones made a lasting difference?
For me, it is the ones that made tough but fair decisions. They expected a lot from themselves and I found myself striving to do the same. It causes my own standards to rise.
I feel when people stay silent, they are actually part of the problem rather than the solution. I wish more people who felt they could make beneficial changes would step forward."
