Madeline Gootman finds her love for life through irony and humor. Life as a southern feminist inspires her daily, and she finds that it makes introductions interesting because it confuses everyone. Nashville provides the perfect backdrop to her life as she pursues a bachelor’s degree at Vanderbilt University while still finding time to eat her way through the city that has the best mix of restaurants. When she isn’t pursuing her dual loves of political science and women’s and gender studies inside of the classroom, she can be found working in her beloved women’s center, spending time in her sorority, or practicing her Español. The high points of Maddie’s week are watching cat videos on YouTube, meeting with her Peer Sex Educator group, and having random dance parties wherever they strike her be they at home, at work, or in the middle of the night in a study lounge.
