  1. Kia Ora Hazel,

    I think that you have made a great choice for this activity. While Jenny Shipley did not serve as Prime Minister (PM) for a very long time she was the first woman to ever hold the position of PM in New Zealand.

    Do you think that you would ever like to become the Prime Minster of New Zealand?
