Josh comes from a fostering family and is a former President of the Foster Care Association of Victoria. He is passionate about creating and maintaining a safe and nurturing environment for all children and young people, education, social justice, and human rights.
A PhD candidate at the University of Melbourne, Josh holds a Master's Degree in Social Work, and Bachelor's Degrees in Arts and Teaching.
