Favorite Quote: "To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself." - Soren Kierkegaard

About Me: I love to hike, bake cookies, play tennis, listen to music, and watch How I Met Your Mother. I consider myself an adopted Nashvillian and love to explore all the unique neighborhoods that make up this city. I love the College Halls because it offers a wonderful community where students of many diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and academic and personal interests are able to find a home

Madison Brown, Atlanta, GA

Major: Sociology and American Studies

Organizations: Tour Guides, Nashville Young Life, Preston Taylor Ministries, Nashville International Center for Empowerment, Glencliff Family Resource Center

Favorite Quote: "Joy is a refusal to let darkness overcome light." - Brad Montague "Your own healing is the greatest message of hope for others."

About Me: If you really knew me, you'd know that quality time is my number one love language. That being said, I love that here in WAM we focus on relationships-- getting to know residents and making friends in the process. One of the coolest things about this community is that we will (probably) never live with this diverse a group of people ever again. I'm excited to soak that up and hopefully get to know most of you!

Major: Divinity

Organizations: Environmental Stewardship and Justice, The Nashville Food Project, Al's Pub, and Society of St. Cornelius

Favorite Quote: "There is no unsacred places; there are only sacred places and desecrated places." -- Wendell Berry

About Me: My world revolves around food. My love for good food comes from my experiences of gardening and sharing delicious home cooked meals with these ingredients with friends, family, and strangers. I believe to take of the ground is to take care of people. My passion is to share freely what I have been freely given.
