Commonwealth Youth Parliament Participant Ethan Floyd

Clayton Barr - Community Recognition Statements

Mr CLAYTON BARR (Cessnock) (18:32): I congratulate Cessnock resident Ethan Floyd, who has been chosen as the New South Wales Commonwealth Parliamentary Association representative to the Commonwealth Youth Parliament in Trinidad and Tobago, to be held from 20 to 24 November. I wish I was going with him. Ethan is an outstanding young individual who comes from my community. He is a First Nations person and intensely talented and clever, with a soul and emotional capacity the size of the universe. He will be a great representative of this State and of the communities of Cessnock but, more importantly, of us as the nation of Australia. Ethan will take his message of “yaama”—which means “hello” in his Indigenous language—to the world. Go get ’em, Ethan. You are going to knock them out, buddy.
