Robbie Francis Watene, PhD – Live The Life You Love

📣  gives us an incredible insight into how she is working on her purpose through her passion for coffee, research, writing, and public speaking.

🔵Robbie talked to us about how being a leader can be incredibly lonely because it means stepping out into the unknown, journeying into spaces that feel really uncomfortable.

🔵 In 2015 Robbie co-founded @The Lucy Foundation (TLF), an Aotearoa-based social enterprise that supports disabled people into training and employment in the global coffee industry. TLF's first project is based in Oaxaca, Mexico, where they work with locals with and without disabilities to regenerate the environment while developing a culture of disability rights and inclusivity through the production of coffee beans.
