People have said that Wendy deserves a medal – guess what just happened?
Wendy started @KnowYourStuffNZ back in 2015. It was underground af. She was prepared to be arrested for trying to keep people safe.
We don’t have any pictures of the early days, coz underground. Here’s our first picture – Wendy (& Samuel Andrews, then at NZDrug) at Kiwiburn in 2017, with one borrowed spec in a tent made from old circus fabric.
Now we’re the world’s first fully legal and publicly funded drug checking service.
Wendy’s hard work and sheer determination has been recognised in the New Year’s Honours List. Today she has been appointed as a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit.
