Her topic

About Sam

Sam grew up in Indonesia and witnessed the hardships faced by many people in developing nations. Being exposed to this from a young age has given Sam her passion and drive to support others.

With a Bachelors degree in Commerce and a Masters in International Security Sam became convinced that business was the most effective way to support people in developing communities.

After spending six years as a Logistics Officer in the Royal New Zealand Air Force Sam was unable to find ethically made corporate workwear. This was the spark that led to the creation of Little Yellow Bird. Dissatisfaction with life in the corporate sector solidified the plan to create a business that offers freedom for not only the people that we support through the sale of our uniforms but also the people that work here.

She is passionate about changing the garment industry, compaigning for workers rights and funding projects that support their aim of breaking the cycle of poverty that exists in developing communities.
