The Seahawk

Maddie Driggers
Maddie is a junior at UNCW who joined the newspaper during the first semester of her sophomore year after the Lifestyles Editor at the time, Erin Hagler, passed her a note during a poetry reading that said she looked like someone who would be interested in writing for the Seahawk. Erin was right! Maddie is a English major with a professional writing concentration and a journalism minor. She has always had a love for English and knew writing was something she wanted to incorporate into her career, but wasn’t quite sure in what capacity until she got to college. After taking a few journalism classes and spending a semester writing for the Seahawk, Maddie knew this field was something she wanted to pursue. Other interests of Maddie's include traveling, journaling, knitting (poorly), watching movie trailers on YouTube, and eating food that is not good for her. In the future, I hope to go to grad school for journalism and work for a hip, trendy magazine a la Carrie Bradshaw.
