In two weeks, one New Zealand woman will stand in London’s Westminster Abbey to perform a poem for the Queen on behalf of 53 countries.

Selina Tusitala Marsh, a Pasifika poet and Auckland University academic, has been commissioned to write and perform a poem at the Commonwealth Day Observance on March 14.

As well as the Queen, the service will be attended by Commonwealth Secretary-General Kamalesh Sharma, along with High Commissioners and other dignitaries from across the Commonwealth.
