With Macquarie’s support, I’ve represented Macquarie and Australia at an international engineering delegation in China, secured an internship with Schneider Electric, founded Macquarie’s Women in Science and Engineering group, and been selected as one of the Top100 Future Leaders of Australia by GradConnection.
