WHERE I SPEND MY TIME
Madeline believes that young people are not only the leaders of tomorrow, but the leaders of today. She is passionate about the engagement of young people in social issues and political discourse, the movement towards global gender equality and tackling unfairness and injustice within our local, national and international communities.
