Julie co-founded charity KidsCan 13 years ago and is the CEO now.  In this interview we talk about her childhood, her first jobs, the influence of her parents on her life and what led her to start KidsCan.  We also talk about child poverty in New Zealand and what they are seeing on the front line among the almost 800 schools that they are in and how they are supporting children in need.  We then discuss Te Ao Māori and its growing influence on what they are doing at KidsCan.  This is one of those heartbreaking, challenging, encouraging and uplifting interviews as we dive deeper with Julie to really understand what motivates her and what they are doing through KidsCan.
