She's running with the motto of "dream big" with innovation, openness and balance as her top priorities.
"Innovation in that we need to start to think of different ways of doing things, openness in that we need to be open to diverse ideas, thoughts, backgrounds and balance," explained Abitoye. "We need to balance things out, in our budget we need to find balance."
The candidate called for change in government.
