Year at UW: Third

Hometown: Spokane, WA

About me: Hi guys! My name is Madison and I am a current third year student here at UW! Deciding on a major was something that I found extremely difficult during my first two years here, and my honors classes were very influential in helping me ultimately find one that I am extremely interested in and passionate about. So if you are unsure about how to go about deciding on what you want to major in, I would love to talk and try to give you the best advice that I can. While at UW, I have had the opportunity to work as a research assistant in a cross-cultural Psychology lab, volunteer for the Human Rights Defense Center, work as an editor for an undergraduate-run journal, and assist with research dealing with the intersection of climate change and human health. I am super passionate about the interaction between science and policy and am interested in pursuing research on climate change in the future. Being a part of UW Honors has allowed me to meet some amazing people and participate in some pretty incredible opportunities. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you have :)
