Marie Liskaser

Marie is a second year Bachelor of Commerce student at the University of Melbourne, majoring in marketing and management. Prior to university, she had never been exposed to the wonderful world of economics until she read an article regarding the ‘Economics of Broadway’ on The As an avid theatre and science nerd (a rare combination), the article was able to open her eyes to the vital role economics plays in everyday life and in a niche field such as musical theatre.

Marie joined ESSA in semester 2 of her first year as Social Media Officer. It seemed like the best fit for her as it allowed her to engage with the creativity of social media posts whilst having an outlet for economic discussion with like minded individuals on the committee. She would say that her favourite part of being on ESSA is the mad banter.

If she’s not on her computer at a sushi restaurant frantically trying to make a last minute event post, you can find Marie watching re-runs of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend on Netflix until the early hours of the morning. Alternatively, she enjoys singing duets from Wicked with Events Officer Aleisha, or updating their joint Instagram account @hurricane_maleisha.
