Helen Clark

Helen Clark, the 37th Prime Minister of New Zealand in three successive terms from 1999 to 2008. Forbes magazine ranked her 20th most powerful woman in the world in 2006.

Helen came to our school as our MP. She was very nice and shook all our hands. She was very obliging when some of the teachers and staff wanted to have a photo taken with her.I joked with my siblings that I wasn't going to wash my hand.

I should have worn a red shirt as red is Labour Party's colour.

Helen Clark was a great prime minister she did well during difficult years. Now she has landed a great new job that will raise NZ's profile throughout the world.
i have never met her or even seen her, I didn't even always vote for her but still I am proud of her.
