I’m Maddy, a 22 year old graduate of Western Washington University!

As a graduate with a psychology degree and a French minor, I am interested in people, culture, language, and how we can work collaboratively and fairly to solve world issues. I have traveled to France and Kenya and would love to travel all over Africa and Europe. Specifically I am interested in foreign aid in developing countries and how we can work with the people of developing countries in a way that preserves cultural integrity and doesn’t perpetuate helplessness and prejudice. Another interest of mine is HIV/AIDS in Africa and social deterrents exist to accessing treatment. I feel like curiosity and open-mindedness should go hand in hand with traveling, and I will do my best to raise important questions about mindful traveling.

I just finished an internship at the World Affairs Council in Seattle as a Community Programs Assistant where I help put on community programs with speakers, authors, politicians, and leaders from around the world about international affairs and now work as an administrative assistant. When I’m not working, I love reading, writing, cooking, learning new languages (I would love to be fluent in French and Swahili) and planning events!
