October 12, 2021

Irihapeti Edwards (Ngāti Manawa, Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Hikairo, Ngāti Awa, Ngāti Whātua ki Kaipara, Te Arawa) is an incredible young woman who works across financial services and global youth leadership. 

Among a number of  accolades, she has been a Prime Minister’s Scholar and UN Youth New Zealand delegate. 

In this episode she talks about financial literacy and the power it has to transform our communities. She shares her journey into leadership and tells us some of her ambitions in the financial sector. 

We have a lot of rangatahi in New Zealand that have all of this power & potential but they don’t have the resources to execute those skills, and that’s through no fault of their own.
