Humans of Annandale: Madisyn Dixon


Madisyn Dixon

Throughout my life, I have always made an effort to set large goals for myself and then work my hardest to achieve them.  In every area of my life, I strive to do the best that I can.  When I started high school, the goals became larger as the world opened up.

The summer before my freshman year, I practiced volleyball all the time.  I wanted to make the varsity team as a freshman because I had been playing for five years.  I worked all summer long, attending clinics and practices, and just practicing in my yard.  I ended up making the team and feeling overjoyed because the  summer long goal I had worked towards came true!

The season was awesome and I became like a respected little sister to my older teammates.  Sophomore year, I became the team captain, which was a big surprise but I was honored that my teammates had picked me. Volleyball is something I love and I am excited for this next season.

Freshman year, I also became involved with the Atoms Writing Center.  The club is a group of tutors that help anyone who requests to be tutored. It is a very amazing experience to get to help with lots of different students and to get to know more people.  This year, I am one of the managing tutors for the club.

In my spare time, I really enjoy reading, practicing braiding, watching TV, and knitting.  I read all kinds of different genres with fantasy being my favorite. Knitting was something I took up during the quarantine and right now I am knitting a dark gray cardigan for myself and I love it!

After high school I want to go to college and most likely study criminology and computer science.  I want to be a federal agent after I graduate because I like to think that I can help make the world a better place.

I have also thought about becoming a politician and maybe even running for President.  I also want to get into a good college, such as Notre Dame or University of Pennsylvania.  I want to be happy in the job that I have and happy in the life that I make for myself.
