In 2013 Robbie was given the opportunity to intern for an international disability rights group in Mexico. Having witnessed first hand the shocking conditions many people with disabilities are forced to live in, she decided to become an active part of the solution. So in 2014 she and her friends co-founded The Lucy Foundation.
Robbie, who lives with a disability herself, is particularly passionate about developing more inclusive, safer and peaceful communities through sustainable and collaborative initiatives. She is also working on her PhD at the University of Otago National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies in Dunedin, New Zealand. Her research is focused on disability rights and the experiences of people with disabilities during armed conflict and war. When she is not working on her PhD or the Foundation she is a seamstress, musician and importantly… an avid coffee drinker!
