When he’s not studying hard for his Microbiology degree at UCD, third year student Leon can usually be found, telephone in hand, chatting to many of our wonderful alumni and friends. Who knows, perhaps you and Leon have talked in the past.
Like you, Leon is hugely motivated to do what he can to help students from disadvantaged backgrounds, who desperately want to study at UCD. For Leon, that means helping with the University’s telephone fundraising drive to encourage more alumni to follow your example and support our students in whatever way they can.
“When I was in secondary school, I knew classmates who felt because of their financial circumstances, or where they came from, they couldn’t go to college. Being a student caller has given me an amazing chance to really help young people like them.”
