Alexia Hilbertidou

She’s joked with the Queen, flown with NASA, had lunch with Jamie (Oliver), tea with the Duchess (Sussex) and rubbed shoulders with David (Beckham). Described by the NZ Herald as the Headmistress of Gen Z, 20 year old Alexia Hil will captivate your audience with insights from her leadership journey as the founder of GirlBoss NZ – the school project which has become NZ’s largest organisation for young women.

Alexia’s isolating experiences as the only girl in her Computer Science and Advanced Physics classes led her to creating the GirlBoss community when she was just 16 years old. The organisation is now a 13,500+ strong network of young women who are passionate about STEM, Leadership and Entrepreneurship. and its programmes have been implemented in more than 100 schools across New Zealand, Australia, and the Cook Islands. Known in Australia as ChangemakeHer, the community is led by students at Brisbane State High School.

Alexia’s commitment to the empowerment of women has earned her the most influential young leader award at the Westpac Women of Influence awards and a Queen’s Young Leader medal for services to the Commonwealth.

Through her jaw dropping, name dropping stories Alexia proves that you are never too young (or too short) to create change.
