Waveney Russ

Waveney was our 2017/18 summer intern at the Wellington offices. Now working for Ākina, she is involved in Media, Communications and Promotions operations. She is currently studying Politics and Māori Studies at the University of Otago.

Working with radio and print journalism outlets between Dunedin and Wellington, Waveney has experience sourcing stories, interviewing those involved and producing content for public consumption. She is passionate about indigenous outcomes, and is interested in the Māori Social Enterprise sector in particular.

She loves a good story, so if you have a Social Enterprise journey you believe is worth sharing, get in contact with her at the email below.
