Hi, I’m Madeline Hicks. I’m a senior at the University of Oregon. This is my first attempt at breaking into the world of social media.
I will be graduating this spring with a major in journalism/public relations and a minor in theatre arts. I am a fifth generation Oregonian, and I love the west coast.
I studied abroad in Angers, France this summer and had the time of my life. When I arrived my vocabulary consisted of “oui” and “bonjour.” The experience taught me that communication is deeper than merely language and that jumping out of one’s comfort zone is incredibly rewarding and life-changing.
Although I’m trying to soak up every last minute of being a college student, I am very excited for this next phase in my life. My parents call it “the real world.” I eagerly welcome any tips/advice/thoughts on the transition from student to professional.
