I'm Karen Kim
This federal election, I'm running as a Senate Candidate to represent Victorian voices.
I have a diverse background of more than thirty years' experience as a musician, educator, social business entrepreneur, community volunteer, board director and media producer. I am a first generation immigrant from South Korea, married to a Dutchman and mother of 3 grown boys.
I have studied business, politics, music and law, which I believe, along with my work experience, enables me to connect dots - experts, people, organisations, stakeholders, to try and find the best solutions to solve problems and accomplish projects. My passion lies in creating impact solutions which lead to a better future.
This election I have put my hat in the ring to run as a Federal Senate Candidate for Victoria because I like many of you, feel there is an urgent need for change.
I want to be a part of the change in culture to a more civil and productive one,
a change in transparency and accountability,
a change in priorities for a better future not for political points
a change in how the people's needs are heard and represented by government
Change is coming, we can all feel it. There is a growing, restless energy for wanting a better way, a different way.
This was my 'stump speech', a module in the 'Pathways to Politics for Women' course presented by University of Melbourne. It outlines a few of the issues that I want to mobilise solutions for:
1.improving the quality of our education system (we rank 39/41 of OECD countries😂)
2. A more integrated, inclusive multicultural, faith and gender respecting Australia.🙏
3. A STEAM revolution - promoting the 'A' (Arts) 👏in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths)
I would love your support
I am ready to serve
the people of Australia
