Live The Dream - Jessikha Leatham-Vlasic

From The Weekend, 10:30 am on 9 January 2016

23 year old Jessikha Leatham-Vlasic has a 16 month old son, and they and her partner live with her family in West Auckland. Even with all that support, she's found it a struggle at times to complete her tertiary education.

She's coming up with ways to help young Maori mums who don't have a support network or sense of identity they can rely on. Jessikha’s been chosen for the Live the Dream accelerator programme that's part of Inspiring Stories.
