Hey Bobcats! Welcome to model member Monday! Maddie Denny is a first year student, majoring in political science.
Maddie is most passionate about LGBTQIA+ rights, Medicare for all, reproductive rights, racial justice, and environmental justice. After taking just a few political sciences courses she learned how important it is to be politically active - vote at every possible opportunity, reach out to members of congress, read up on policy, learn how those policies affect yourself and others, and encourage others to do the same. 2020 was the first time Maddie had the opportunity to vote in a presidential election, and although Joe Biden wasn't her first choice (fun fact: in 2019, she drove to South Bend to watch Pete Buttigieg announce he was running), she was still super excited to vote for him and is even more excited to see what he will do during his time in the Oval Office. She's so stoked to be on campus as soon as it's safe and is looking forward to working with OU College Democrats for the rest of her undergrad career!
