MEMBERS STATEMENT | AFROSHINE AUSTRALIA AWARDS

Ms VAGHELA: On another note, I was delighted to represent the Premier, Daniel Andrews, and the Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Richard Wynne, at the seventh annual Afroshine Australia Awards 2019. The Afroshine Australia Awards are an annual event hosted by Africa Media Australia, which acknowledges the achievements of African-Australian communities and individuals from around Australia. Victoria’s African communities have contributed in all spheres of Victorian life and bettered our multicultural identity. Congratulations to all the Afroshine award recipients. I would like to thank Africa Media Australia for hosting me. I commend their hard work and dedication in supporting the community.
