Alexia is in Christchurch thanks to the generosity of EPIC Innovation, led by Wil McLellan and Colin Andersen. EPIC is committed to lifting participation of young people in technology and as a result of their support, Alexia is able to offer 10 Changemakeher workshops free to Christchurch.
Alexia will be at Rangi Ruru 2.30pm – 3.30pm on Monday 2nd July to speak to 110 Y12 girls, with approx. 30 other parents/teachers and students in attendance.
She will then be back at Rangi on Wednesday 4th of July to do two 2 hour Changemakeher workshops with Year 10 and 11 students.
This would be a good photo opportunity, seeing the girls participating in the workshops. It is interactive and a lot of fun!
Wednesday 4th July is a day Alexia is best placed for media interviews as she will have just arrived back from London from the Queens Young Leader Awards and will need some time to re-charge her batteries.
Alexia is a sought-after speaker who has spoken to more than 20,000 people in corporate offices, government agencies and schools in the last 18 months.
Just returned from a mission with NASA, Alexia’s own mission is to get young women to the table – the boardroom table that is, and she believes the decisions made while young are crucial in paving the way.
Alexia’s passion for STEAM led her to create Girlboss when she was just 16 years old. Less than two years later GirlBoss has become an 8000 strong network for ambitious, young New Zealand women.
Despite being only 18, Alexia has packed a significant amount of leadership and entrepreneurial experience into her life. A Global Teen Leader, a Ministry of Youth Development Top 5 Young Leader, and winner of the Westpac Young Leader Award, Alexia’s humble origins and incredible journey make her a positive and relatable role model for young women from every corner of New Zealand.
