Libby McDonald


My name is Libby McDonald, and I am 24 years old. I have lived in Dunedin for 6 years now.

I have a Bachelor of Science and am now in my final year of a Bachelor of Physiotherapy, hoping to represent disabled youth as a healthcare professional. I live with invisible physical disabilities and chronic illness, so I am an ambulatory wheelchair user and a huge advocate for accessibility.

In my spare time, I teach piano and singing. I also love to get outdoors, go to the gym and play adaptive sports. I have a little golden retriever, Maisie, who has half of my personality!!

I am so excited to help establish i.Lead in Otepoti, and can’t wait to help bring down some of the awesome initiatives the Auckland team have championed. 

Oak Roberts


Kia ora, my name is Oak, and I am a 21-year-old. I live in Dunedin (Ōtepoti). I have two disabilities: Hydrocephalus and Autism.

I am passionate about social justice and inclusivity and making sure people are heard and respected.

In my spare time, I love going for walks, drinking coffee and hanging out with friends.

Hannah Pearson


Kia ora, my name is Hannah, and I’m 27 years old. I was born in England but moved to New Zealand when I was 7, so I’d say I’m a Kiwi now! I am proudly autistic and a very passionate disability advocate, having been raising awareness of the Sunflower Lanyard around the country along with working for the local NASC since 2023. I am incredibly grateful to be involved with I.Lead and can’t wait to start planning things for the future!
