Meet our caller


"Being a student caller has been a fantastic learning experience. By the end of the campaign I was really passionate about Macquarie University and about raising funds for its many worthy causes.  The best part was talking to alumni and receiving their advice.  I’ve learnt to ask for a good cause without feeling shy, it’s improved my listening skills and I’ve learnt a lot about my own university.”
