These memories grew into a deep passion for sustainability, which Madeleine applies to her life today. Madeleine currently attends the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, studying international and social development, and wishing to work to create more cohesion between humans and the rest of our planet. She is deeply passionate about educating people of all ages about the many wonders of MEarth’s property.
