Dara is from Singapore. She came to New Zealand in 2019 and has come to accept wind-swept hair as the daily look. She began work at the Asia New Zealand Foundation in November 2021.
Dara started out in corporate communications earlier in her career and later made the switch to early education.
She holds a Master’s degree in early childhood development and a BA in mass communication.
In her spare time, she could be playing her guitar, pottering in the front yard, or just chilling with her Beagle.
