#3: Lissa Chong

Victoria University classmate 2000 - 2002, VUWSA Exec member, 2002

I used to see Lissa at Beats'n'Bubbles at the Old Bodega every tuesday. We hooked up a couple of times in the way that students on cheap champagne night tend to do, and soon become good friends. We both studied politics and in our final year we were both elected to the Victoria University Students' Association Executive.

Her heart was always in it more than mine though. She'd be right up the front at protests, screaming her lungs out. I'd be at the back. She'd give the speech on the steps of parliament, I'd be asking around about the afterparty.
