1. What is your middle name?
My middle name is “Ivy” after my grandmother. I have always loved this part of my name, and the uniqueness to it. I decided to self-title my website and include “Ivy” because of how close I am with my middle name. I started signing my name, and including “Ivy” in it in my junior year of high school and haven’t stopped since. Since the name “Madeleine” is becoming increasingly common, I like that “Ivy” sets me apart from the others. My Great Grandmother had amazing taste when she named my grandmother.
2. What is your favourite color?
AH. This question is so hard because I love so many different colors. If I had to pick one I think it would be lavender because of how calming of a shade it is.
3. Who was your first best friend?
Cortlynn Danby! Cortylnn and I immediately became best friends when we met in school and remained close throughout elementary school—inseparable—almost like sisters. I was an only child for the first 10 years of my life so having her around to play with made me incredibly happy. Thinking back, I remember her showing me and introducing me to all the newest and coolest things. She was always happy and always kind.
Over the years I’ve moved, and we both grew up, and apart, but I still cherish the memories we had as children—some of the fondest memories I have as a child were spent with her. She has grown into such a beautiful person from what I can tell. I hope one day we can reconnect and spend some time catching up.
