Women & Girls

Brendan Devoy | Auckland, NZ

I’m a 23 year old marketing graduate from Auckland, New Zealand.
Misfit has been a project that has evolved from my humble beginnings of brewing some questionable homebrew while at University. Graduating in late 2015, I developed the company in the first half of 2016, before getting a corporate job at New Zealand’s largest brewery. 18 months later, I decided to leave this job, jumping into Misfit Brewing Co. full time, working to release our first range of beers in late 2018.

The Karma Collective | AUS

We are all about making the world a better place each and every day. Whether it’s as something as simple as brightening up someones day with a smile, we believe that everyone can positively impact our world.
Our goal is to put out good karma everyday – and collectively, significantly impact our world for the better. We want to do this by having a product offering that people love, that will also make a meaningful difference in the world.

Louise Matich | New Zealand

Originally from New Zealand, I have spent the last three years both living and working overseas on numerous international projects and events in both the public and private sectors. I have a degree in Management and Psychology, a background in International Development and am focused on and passionate about creating a positive impact and driving social change.

The Possibility Project | Sydney, AUS

The Possibility Project is about restorative justice. It’s about restoring balance between people and planet through conscious relationships. We have created a slow clothing label called slumwear108, made through practises that value dignified relationships throughout the entire supply chain. The power of restorative justice is that it aims to nurture change without judgement, punishment, fear and separation.

Matthew Kwong | Melbourne

I’m currently studying a double degree of Business (Finance) and Industrial Design @ Monash University. Besides from studying (and Charity Tap), I’m the National Marketing Lead for UNIHACK Australia and an entrepreneurship ambassador at Monash University’s startup initiative, The Generator. My passion lies within using my design and business expertise to create positive social impact, whether it’s through developing meaningful products or making services more accessible to those who need it.

Aqeel Camal

I’m a 17 year-old designer, problem solver and community builder. I’ve got a tendency to be extremely optimistic about people and the world we live in. I truly believe that everyone has value to add in this world, but the systems of education currently in place don’t help us realise that potential. There are so many issues out there to be solved, and so many people with great ideas who want to make a difference but are not empowered to act on them. I think that if we were able to help young people around the world reach their potential, we’d have generations growing up who interact mostly through kindness, empathy and compassion, while being empowered with the skills to make the world a better place. The thought of such a world is what drives me.

Rachel O’Connell

I’m a 24 year old Event Coordinator who has an eye for DIY, organisation and keeping active. I love a good book and playing sport. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Event management and have been working in managerial roles since my graduation. Like my sister, I have worked in schools in Papua New Guinea with From me to PNG to build libraries. I have created and update our website and facilitate new marketing strategies for From me to PNG.
