We are thrilled to have MR Kevin Dando & our Queen herself, Inez Manu-Sione as our MC’s for the day!
Kevin Dando from Multicultural Communities Council Gold Coast Ltd is their CAMS officer (Community Action for a Multicultural Society), a program by Multicultural Affairs Queensland. This role encourages advocacy and community capacity building activities for the benefit of people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and to strengthen multiculturalism across Queensland. Born in New Zealand to parents of Cook Islands and Australian descent this rich heritage forms a solid spiritual and cultural foundation in his roles as a husband, father and community leader.
Originally born in Fiji to Tongan parents, Inez moved to Australia where she was raised in a small Aboriginal community called Yirrkala in the Northern Territory. As a QUT Alumni, Inez completed a Bachelor of Law/ Bachelor of Business. Through her degree she was admitted into the Supreme Court as a lawyer and went on to work as the program manager of Pasifika LIPI, a Pacific Island & Maori young offenders program in Logan and Inala. With a passion for helping and working with our Pasifika and Maori communities, Inez went onto being the multicultural co-ordinator at Good Start a state-wide QLD Health program funded to improve the health of Maori and Pacific Island children, youth and families. Continuing her work with our communities, Inez is currently the Success Coach at Ipswich High School, working with students that have high behaviour issues, low attendance and are at high risk of dis-engaging from school. Whilst working full time she is also completing a Doctorate of Education. As a Pasifika woman she has achieved not only one, but several degrees that continue to help our community. As students this is a great opportunity to network with an individual who has already achieved so much in such a small time frame and built large networks in varying areas.
