Delise Hampton, Contributor
A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Guest Blogger Delise Hampton grew up in a very modest home, with four siblings and her mother as the sole provider of the necessities. No stranger to hardships, one of the most memorable experience was that of Hurricane Katrina. Delise was only ten years old, but she never let this hold her back, and the experience firmed her resolve to maximize every moment.
In her sophomore year in high school, Delise won third place as “Change Maker of the Year” by Xavier University. Graduating in the top five of her class with a 4.4 GPA, she is a graduate of Howard University in Washington, DC, and was recognized as Howard University Association of Black Journalists’ “Member of the Month,” and Outstanding Producer of the Year by WHUT-TV as a student. Delise completed her first journey abroad to Cape Town, South Africa where she studied at the University of Cape Town with the Institute for the International Education of Students, IESabroad. She has blogged about her experience there for Ask The Strategist. Strong-willed, positive, and curious, Delise’s primary goal in life is to affect change in the world, one country, city, or region at a time.

Madeleine Marshall, Contributor
Guest blogger Madeleine (Maddy) Marshall is a graduate of Mount Holyoke College with a double major in International Relations and French. She was highly involved in the Student Government Association (SGA), representing the Pre-Law Association, as well as serving on two committees: the Career Development Center (CDC) Advisory Committee and the Committee for Senate Continuity. Maddy recently wrote and presented the new Senator Handbook to the SGA Senate, a tool she hopes will encourage transparency, accountability, and continuity in the Senate, thereby fulfilling one of the key goals set forth in the Senate Leadership Retreat held at the beginning of the semester.
Maddy traveled to Haiti to volunteer with a program involved with micro lending to women entrepreneurs in the Cap Haitien area last month, bringing her one step closer to the ultimate goal of a career as a diplomat to a French and Arabic speaking country.
