Wellingtonian of the Year finalized
The former Wellington High student has begun to study politics and international relations at the University of Victoria this year, and has recently been nominated for Young Wellingtonian of the Year.
John Dow's award organizer said the McGauley nomination would still stand. If she were to win, the prize would be put thereafter.
He had done extensive work with Emergency Rape Wellington and the HELP of Sexual Abuse Wellington, as well as establishing his own organization, Eva's Wish.
McGauley said Stuff In 2016, she had gone through "normal split emotions" when she knew she was dead.
"I have always assumed that I'm going to do a lot of things to help people in my life. And suddenly I said," I'm not a crap, I do not have much time. "So, guessing, I started work from that moment. "
Eva's Wish started after a conversation with a friend, Simon Woolf, Wellington city councilor.
"We were on red light when I asked the usual question of what you want to do? & # 39; … I answered, & changed the world.
"Then he told me to answer with more details before the light turned green.
"I thoroughly enjoyed and scaned quickly before the lines I want New Zealand to have an online messaging service for people who are affected by rape & # 39 ;. "
Woolf then arranged a meeting with the Green Party MP Jan Logie who proposed to let McGauley work in his office as an intern.
She was the only incredible son, "said Woolf.
"People like Evie are rare and special. It may have passed but its trigger will go on for years and years."
He said that many people, like Helen Clark and Dame Patsy Reddy, have impressed McGauley, but not less than Duchess Sussex, Meghan Markle.
He took pictures at the House of Government when McGauley met the Duke and the Duchess, and had heard Markle singing McGauley praising her husband, Prince Harry after the meeting.
"She told Harry what she was an incredible girl."
One of the many "best friends", Anya Bukholt-Payne, said McGauley was a proud feminist.
"It was really fun to hang out with her. We could have talks about anything from Harry Potter to change climate and consent.
"She was the most supportive and loving friend you could ask for."
McGauley won a number of prizes in her short life, including the New Zealand Youth Award and the New Zealand Local Hero of the Year Award.
Instagram said that a funeral would take place in Wellington, probably later in the week.
