Members Statement: Ezi Magbegor

Ros SPENCE (Yuroke) (13:46:57) — Today I am pleased to acknowledge three exceptional young people from my electorate of Yuroke. Eighteen-year-old Ezi Magbegor is a Craigieburn basketballer who has participated in fantastic work raising money for disadvantaged youth. As part of Whitelion’s Bail Out event Ezi spent time locked behind bars at the Old Melbourne Gaol and was joined by two of her teammates, who were all stripped of their possessions. To be released inmates such as Ezi and her teammates had to raise at least $1000 towards Whitelion, and amazingly Ezi raised more than $2500 for this sensational cause. Well done, Ezi, on shining a light on disadvantaged youth.
