Dart Scholar Alumnus
Class of 2020
Stanford University, USA
Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity
Madeleine works for an organisation in California that offers legal aid to low-wage workers, having graduated from Stanford with a Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity, with a sub plan in politics, policy and equity. At Stanford, she worked as a social sciences research assistant with a focus on how technology can be used to analyse data. She enjoys applying the skills she learned in college to her work, building website infrastructure and using technology to improve service delivery and make resources available to those that need them most.
I am still incredibly grateful for the opportunity to attend the Bangkok One Young World Summit in 2015. After leaving United World College USA, I really missed being able to interact with the international community about social issues I care about.
Madeleine is proud of her work as a clinical intern for the San Francisco Center for Psychoanalysis where she helped build a fellowship that provides formerly incarcerated people with the training and opportunities to become social workers.
“Knowing the important role social workers have in creating a safer society, I truly believe the best people to lead that work are the very same people who were denied access to the resources and systems we want to build now.”
Madeleine is keeping an open mind as to what the future holds, but wherever she ends up, she wants her work to stay rooted in solving social problems and making the world a better place to live.
