Gemma Major is the very worthy 2018 recipient of our Eva Gluyas Scholarship, The award criteria were simple. The winner had to be a brave woman who was into designing and implementing some cool stuff aimed at creating a better world. Gemma rose above some very stiff competition and fitted these criteria beautifully. Eva would have approved.
I got to interview Gemma just two days before she went on maternity leave with her first baby. What has Gemma created that is so cool? Seed Waikato, a registered charity with a dream to see young people thrive in the Waikato. Led by millennial's, for millennial's, Seed creates epic experiences and opportunities for young people to connect and grow. And Gemma’s bravery? Well have a listen and you will understand.
Gemma chose the Te Awanga Estate Pinot Noir – for a time when she can celebrate!
