28 year old Angela Lim is a doctor, board director and entrepreneur who has an ambition to transform the mental health system through technology.  She's about to leave Starship hospital where she's a trainee paediatrician, to lead a new tech organisation she's founded called Clearhead, backed by a Swiss investor. It's a software platform which aims to act as a one-stop-shop for mental wellbeing. 

Angela, who was a finalist for Young New Zealander of the Year in 2017,  talks with Kathryn about the business, her background growing up in Malaysia and her experience coming to New Zealand as a teenager.
