Traveler Bio

Hallo, guten tag! Hello, good day! My name is Madeline White, but you can call me Maddie. I am 21 years old and my hometown is Warsaw, Indiana. I am currently a senior at Indiana University studying international law and geospatial sciences. 

I enjoy visiting Lake Michigan, learning new languages, and trying new kinds of food. I also love art, music, and culture. Growing up in Indiana, it was always my dream to study abroad--and now it's happening! In the future, I plan to join the Peace Corps, and then attend law school so I can work in immigration law. While in Berlin, I will be learning new things about international politics, working on my language skills (German and Turkish), and experiencing a whole new culture. I'm so excited to have you join me on this journey!
