Julie Woods - perhaps better known as 'That Blind Woman' - is a speaker, author, and global ambassador for Blind Low Vision NZ.
When Julie isn't busy advocating for others, she's busy with her own wild adventures, including visiting 50 countries by the time she turned 50.
Today is her 58th birthday and in true Julie fashion she's celebrating with a big public birthday bash.
It kicks off at 4pm today at the Dunedin Social Club, and the first 58 people to arrive will get a free drink and a specially designed coaster, which tell stories from Julie's travels.
Julie shares her story and celebration plans with Jesse.
