Alina wowed with poetry, Yoseph wowed with languages, and Bec and David were duly wowed.

Alina Siegfried and Yoseph Ayele are leading the Edmund Hillary Fellowship to ‘work together from New Zealand to solve some of humanity’s greatest challenges’. Their first international and local cohort of 30 Fellows starts this October on their three year programme, assisted by a world-first Global Impact Visa from New Zealand’s Government.

They share some of their and that story to now, and we unpack some of the gargantuan challenges they have set for themselves and for the first, and subsequent cohorts. 

Episode runs almost exactly 60mins, with quite a chunk of 'couldn't not keep' pre-show tucked at the end. Slam poetry ex-National Champion anyone?
