Intended Major: Sociology

Contact Madison:

Madison is from a small town in southern Georgia. Her experience in this community has influenced her passion for sociology and education and how those two subjects interlap. These passions led Madison to choose the DukeEngage Tanzania Literacy Through Photography program; her experience with the program and Arusha community only strengthened her desire to pursue some form of career in education, either as a public school teacher or as an education researcher.

Madison’s Six Word Stories describing her experience:

Teaching taught me compromise and juhudi. 

Growth comes from teaching and learning. 

Mwalimu anakuwa mwanafunzi; mwanafunzi anakuwa mwalimu.
