Alexia Hilbertidou is determined to change the world – and she is fearless in her quest. The 18-year-old is the founder of GirlBoss New Zealand, a social enterprise boasting 8000 members that aims to address gender inequality by empowering female students. She's also the brain child behind KaiShare, a food distribution service for those in need. “I don’t wait for milestones and I don’t wait to be given permission to go out there and create change.” The teenager’s big thinking has taken her to the edge of the world – quite literally. She was recently invited by NASA scientists to take part in an overnight mission at 45,000ft, something she describes as “an absolutely life-changing experience”.

Ziera is built around the values of empowering and supporting women – and is sharing the stories of incredible Kiwis who inspire others through their amazing spirit. When asked what her favourite styles from the SS17 collection were, Alexia picked Excite in black, as they look fashionable and comfortable.
