Hiya! I’m Madison! I am super excited to be the Editor-in-Chief this year and show what I am truly capable of. This is my final year here at VSU and on the staff and I couldn’t be happier with how it’s ending! I am graduating in May and plan to take on grad school shortly after. My goal in life is to become an editor for a news outlet, but I am going where the wind takes me. Coffee, coloring and Harry Styles make my world go round.
