Fourth generation Australian Macedonian leads by example in changing the world for the better

That actions speak louder than words is definitely true in Madison Ristevski’s case, a 16-year-old student from Wollongong and fourth generation Australian Macedonian.As part of her studies, she needed to complete a community project that aims to make the world a better place. “Having visited Macedonia several times, I have come to realise that we are blessed to live in Australia, a country where health, education, democracy and quality of life are considered some of the best in the world.”On one of her visits to Macedonia, Madison spent a day at the Medical School in Bitola. Moved by the dismal conditions in which her Macedonian peers study, she decided to commence a fundraising project and help renovate the rundown toilets at the school.In only four months she motivated people from Australia, New Zealand, China, Philippines, Malta, Canada and USA to donate for her cause, raising $37,710, well above her initial target. “My experience is that children learn from home, community and country. If there is little inspiration at home, a depressed community and a host of complex problems facing a country, then where do the children go to grow, prosper and chase their dreams? “- says Madison.
