Madeleine volunteers with Assisi Aid Projects one day per week, alongside completing her Masters in Development Studies at the University of Melbourne, having finished her internship with Assisi Aid Projects last year.

Compelled by her passion for gender equality, sustainability and international development, Madeleine sought out further study and experience, leading her to intern at AAP. Madeleine's primary areas of interest have been the intersectionality between gender power-relations, climate change and concurrent economic and social empowerment for women in the south-pacific region.

Madeleine also has a Bachelor of Arts in Politics and International Relations from the University of Melbourne.
