Madeleine Buchner applied for a degree in Marketing at RMIT to help her grow the charity she established. She found not only the ideal course, but also the support she needed.
The scholarship has spurred me on to achieve in both my education and my future career, while also allowing me to put more back into the community.”
“I started a charity when I was at school called Little Dreamers, which helps young carers by giving dream experiences. I realise now that I had been marketing the charity without realising how much I enjoyed that aspect and, as a result, I have loved the Marketing degree course.”
“My family was so excited when I was awarded the scholarship and it has been a huge relief for me because I don’t have to work on top of my voluntary work with Little Dreamers. As part of the scholarship I also receive five hours of leadership training each year, which has been incredibly motivating.”
Madeleine has been a carer for both her younger brother and her mum and wanted to help other people in the same situation. Since she started Little Dreamers in 2009, it has granted 70 dreams to young carers.
