Jonique Purcell - What Does Suffrage 125 Mean to You?

November 7th 2018
Without the women who laid out the foundations, the ones with us who are continuing the good fight and the ones after us who I hope are inspired/encouraged to carry on the legacy of wahine in New Zealand, I wouldn't be doing what I am today so I will always be grateful for that.

What do you do in the Music Industry?

My contribution to the music industry is directing the wheel at youth lead collective and blogging website, Nah Zone

What does Suffrage 125 mean to you and what advice would you offer other women pursuing their dreams and career goals?

Without the women who laid out the foundations, the ones with us who are continuing the good fight and the ones after us who I hope are inspired/encouraged to carry on the legacy of wahine in New Zealand, I wouldn't be doing what I am today so I will always be grateful for that. My only advice would be to always follow your instinct and have more than enough faith in yourself that you are and will be the best in your field - don't ever be shy with what you have to offer because it serves nobody.

What does New Zealand being a world leader in social change mean to you?

Being entrusted and having the responsibility to always have the best interest of the people by leading with heart rather than ego.
