Donate to Stella Yee for Menzies

Stella Yee is the Labor candidate for Menzies in Victoria for the 2019 federal election. Stella was born in Malaysia where upon completing secondary school was selected as one of the few to receive state assistance for studies in the USA. She graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work and was offered a scholarship to undertake a Master’s degree in Public Policy Analysis. After living and working in several countries, Stella and her family decided to migrate to Australia. They moved to Melbourne in 2001 and have lived in Doncaster for the past 14 years. Stella is actively involved in her local community and volunteers with the Vinnies Soup Van, visits elderly Italians through Co.As.It., and runs an innovative after-school Mandarin extension program at a local primary school. She is the Chair of the Bilingual Education Foundation Australia, a not-for-profit organisation she founded with the support of Lions Club, to promote the learning of languages in schools. From her own experience, Stella knows that education transforms lives, and will work to ensure that all children have access to a world-class education. Having lived in the U.S., Stella understands and appreciates the critical role that Medicare plays in maintaining our collective well-being and will work to ensure that Medicare provides everyone with access to the quality health care they need, when they need it. 

Stella is being mentored by Kim Clarke Travers, EMILY's List Membership Officer.

"None of us gets to choose the circumstances to which we are born.  Some of us have it good, others less so.  I strongly believe that governments have a key role to play to ensure every woman, man and child gets the opportunity to better themselves and to lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives."
