Maddie was someone I was a little more familiar with. She is in my 9:30 am history class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. She was so quirky and optimistic, and came up to me with nothing but a smile on her face and her preppy talk. She is a sophomore, like I am, and is majoring in Liberal Studies. She wants to be a teacher, and I asked her what kind of teacher, and she said she wanted to be an elementary school teacher. She wanted to be a kindergarten teacher but worked with a kindergarten class and that made her change her mind. “The kids are too crazy and little for me,” was what she said. So she has her mind more towards becoming a second grade teacher. But at the same time, she is such an animal lover that she also wants to work with animals. Her dream is to own an animal shelter and just take in any and as much animals as she possibly can. She also wants to travel everywhere, her first destination being New Zealand, but mostly Europe and wants to study abroad there. She is a Lord of the Rings fanatic and her favorite movie is a chick flick called Just Friends. Her favorite actor is Ryan Renolds but mentions he isn’t a very good actor, just hot. Maddie has a chihuahua named Coco, like my dog. She’s from Long Beach and used to dorm here but decided it was too expensive and moved back home at the start of her sophomore year. From talking to her, she is such an animal lover and she is such a positive person with good ambitions.
