Madeleine Madden is a young woman with big aspirations.  

Maddy has a passion for improving the lives of Indigenous Australians through the performing arts.

At 13 Maddy is already determined to make her mark and to continue a family tradition of advocating for greater opportunities for Indigenous Australians. 

Maddy is the daughter of Hetti Perkins and the late Lee Madden and the granddaughter of Chicka and Lily Madden, and Eileen and Charles Perkins.

It is both her passion and performance that made Maddy the ideal candidate to deliver Australia’s first Address to the Nation.

 Maddy has grown up in inner Sydney and she has traveled to rural and remote communities.

 As a result, she is only too well aware that many Indigenous Australians still face significant barriers in the pursuit for better education, training and employment opportunities.
