Hi! My name is Madeline Yost but my friends call me Maddie and I’d consider us friends already. Goshen, Indiana is my hometown which I have a lot of love for. Four generations of Yost’s have lived and worked in Goshen so everyone pretty much knows everyone at this point and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I have lived there my whole life and wouldn’t be the person I am today if I didn’t grow up with the atmosphere Goshen has. I spend most of my time in Muncie, Indiana where I attend Ball State University. I am currently studying Public Relations and Fashion and plan on graduating in the Spring of 2017. So far at Ball State, I have been apart of with NewsLink, Dance Marathon and Chi Omega sorority. I serve as the Webmaster for the Phi Epsilon chapter which is just a weird way to say Marketing and Technology chair. They prefer Webmaster, I prefer Social Media Princess.
My music background includes playing piano and cello, as well as singing in choir, show choir and multiple musicals. My mother is the choral director and music department chairperson at Goshen High School which is where I attended. She has 3 State Champion and 9 State Runner-up titles with her Advanced Crimson Choir as well as multiple grand champion titles from cities such as New York City, Toronto and Washington D.C. but no pressure as her daughter right? Okay...there wasn’t THAT much pressure because we both love music and bond over it. Whether it was her directing me in The Wizard of Oz as the Wicked Witch or singing along to Adele on the radio, music helped make my mom my best friend.
If you’d like to know even more about me, I made a list below of some of my favorite things and not so favorite things. By the way, I’m a big advocate of lists.
- Being on the water
The Chief ice cream
Stargazing in the middle of a lake
Not So Favorite Things
- The middle back seat of small cars
Big piles of gross brown snow in parking lots
I also love the smell of coffee but not a huge fan of the taste, spending time at my lake house, eating breakfast food and have the honor of being maid of honor this summer for my best friend, Katie. I hope this gives you a better idea about who I am and what I love. I am so excited to be at MFA for the summer as a Marketing Intern. So if you’re ever in Goshen, Muncie or Downtown Indianapolis this summer and spot me, don’t be afraid to say hi!
