Jacinda Ardern is a true leader and an inspiration to all women
• She is also the first world leader since 1990 to have a baby whilst in office
• Her life history reveals that she was once a rocking DJ
• She performed as a DJ at Auckland’s Laneway music festival in 2014
Jacinda Ardern became world’s youngest woman leader by fetching the post of the Prime Minister of New Zealand at just 37. However, the case was completely different when she was young, she was just like any other regular girl who loved music and partying.
Her track record discloses that she was once a DJ and had performed for a good 45-minutes at Auckland’s Laneway music festival in the year 2014.
The stylish politician always adorning a breezy smile is setting an example for all women out there on how to lead life like a queen.
She started off her political career by becoming the Labour Party Leader and there has been no looking back ever since. Even her Instagram feed boasts of an inspiring woman who is out a mission to culminate child poverty.
Back in the days, Ardern spent her spare time playing DJ (or as she prefers the term “tune selector” for herself rather than a “real DJ”), said Isabelle Truman, the digital content editor of Marie Claire.
Ms Truman spilled beans about her years old friendship with Ms Ardern, revealing how good of a human being she is. “She is still the same genuine, kind and incredibly smart woman I’ve always known. Still a friend you can laugh with over a glass of wine, just one who now happens to run a country.” – said Ms Truman.
In the latest issue of the magazine, Ms Truman highlighted the persona of Ardern before she joined the office.
Ms Ardern was born in a conservative Mormon family but as soon as she stepped in her 20s, she left the faith and its opposition to same sex marriage.
Her interest in politics came into effect for the first time during her high school elections, when she fought for girls’ rights to wear trousers on campus.
Then soon at the age of 17 she joined Labour Party as a volunteer and started door knocking and handing out flyers whilst juggling her job at the local fish shop.
She replaced her casual clothing for trendy suits, and went on to become New Zealand’s youngest Labour MP in 2008.
‘I am the first to concede that I am not a normal young person,’ the then-28-year-old said in her maiden speech in parliament.
Few years down the line she met her current partner, TV presenter Clarke Gayford after he penned a letter to her about his concerns over a security bill being debated in parliament.
What started off as a friendship soon blossomed into romance and now they are happily together with their 9 month old baby girl.
