Ms Rodrigues is a youth caseworker for a leading not-for-profit organisation working with newly arrived refugee and migrant youth.

Chaired by Nick Kaldas APM, the Multicultural NSW Advisory Board provides advice and guidance on a range of matters relating to culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

“We are committed to ensuring the views and concerns of all people across NSW are heard in government decision-making processes. Greater representation means greater diversity and that is what makes NSW such a successful multicultural state,” Mr Kaldas said.

Multicultural NSW Chief Executive Joseph La Posta said, “these new and returning Advisory Board members and youth member will amplify the voices of diverse communities across government. The passion for their communities will be enormously beneficial to ensuring future generations can enjoy the rich social fabric of our great state.”
