Madeleine joined quidditch because her RA, sophomore Tufflepuff Max Leonhardt, told her to come to the first open practice of the year. On top of Max's good influence, Madeleine's little sister pushed her to try out since she thought quidditch sounded cool. This freshman tufflepuff thinks it's awesome that most people who join quidditch don't have any prior experience so everyone learns together and starts out on the same page. Additionally, Madeleine thinks that the people on the Tufts Tournament team are pretty fantastic - so she's constantly looking forward to traveling to tournaments and spending time together as a tuffle-family.
On top of her role as lady chaser, Madeleine likes being involved as much as possible in a broad spectrum of acitivities and groups. This tufflepuff plans on majoring in IR and taking as many languages as she can - she's currently taking German and Russian, and wants to explore languages like french, italian and chinese before graduating. Outside of the classroom, Madeleine likes to try crazy and outgoing activities - which is why quidditch is a good match for her. This year, Madeleine joined the Tufts Ballroom club and has been competing in competitions with them over the past two semesters. She also loves exploring the outdoors, and trying things that generally fly under the radar. For instance, Madeleine has done pole vaulting and trapezeing all in the past year!
Madeleine is excited to play teams she knows nothing about at World Cup 7 and to just experience the whole event for the first time!
