Madison Beaupre chose Public Relations as her major at Waldorf because, she “loves working with people and creating new things.” She’s gotten to do plenty of both during her time at Waldorf – event planning, graphic design, writing, television and radio (she is “DJ Mads” on KZOW radio) – PR majors get to dabble in it all. (Check out her portfolio here).
One of her favorite things about Waldorf is the small class sizes because it allows for individual attention and “to create those relationships with the teachers.”
When she’s not in the studio or in class, Madison likes to push herself at the gym. “Every day after school I go to the gym to work out and swim, it’s a passion even though I’m not in any sports at Waldorf,” she said. Madison also loves to cook and travel – like her reason for choosing Public Relations, she has a passion for always trying new things.
Best of all, this Cambridge, Minnesota native is only a few hours from home and her parents, whom she considers her idols. Madison says her parents have helped to push her in being the person she is today. “They taught me to never give up and to follow my dreams,” she said. “They have stuck by my side no matter what.”
