My name is Madeleine Ziegert and I am born and raised in Sweden. I finished High School in Sweden at Gulldstrand High School, where I specified most of my classes in art. After conducting an exhibition at the largest museum in Sweden I decided to change my direction into the field of communication. I started at San Jose State University August 2008 and I am graduating this May 2012. What really brought me to California and San Jose is the Women’s Golf Team. I am now the captain of the golf team and being a competitive golfer have helped my leadership characteristics to grow as well as being a part of a team on and off the course. In today’s world it is very important to work as a team and I believe it has helped me complete my studies and grow as a person. By living in the heart of Silicon Valley, technology has inspired me to take extra classes in Business, which I very proud of. My plans are to move back to Sweden in August 2012 and who knows what my future will bring to me!
