Alexia is Unstoppable

20 September 2017

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.

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”.

When asked what her favourite styles from the SS17 collection were, Alexia picked Excite in black, as they look fashionable yet comfortable .
