Madison is a junior at Gilmour Academy and lives in Strongsville, Ohio. She is interested in exploring many different fields, including research science, preventive medicine, law, business, working with special needs children, and, of course, journalism. Above all of this, her dream is to "accomplish something big" and make a positive change in the world. For now, however, she is focusing on journalism and serving her school by contributing to its newspaper, The Lance. Thus far, she has experience in various english courses, power of the pen, and is a member of Gilmour's speech and debate team. She enjoys these classes and activities because they further expand her understanding and interest in the communication fields. Madison embraces new challenges and opportunities and is excited to experience all of the adventures life has to offer her. Other concepts and hobbies that interest Madison include astronomy, reading, drawing, running, old movies and 50's music (particularly Frank Sinatra), baseball, service activities, bunnies, and Italian food. Madison is the Founder and Executive Director of the non-profit organization, M.A.D. Club and is a cheerleader for Gilmour's Varsity basketball team. She is a member of her school's Speech and Debate Team, Club for Animal Respect and Education (C.A.R.E.), Astronomy Club, and the National Society of High School Scholars.
