Madeline Marshall

It seems as if instead of only having one younger brother, she had too many siblings to count. Madeline Marshall, freshman, spent her childhood years growing up with her 27 other cousins.

In her childhood, Marshall spent a lot of time with her tight-knit family, since they all lived in close proximity to one another. Her favorite childhood memory consisted of  “hanging out with my cousins and doing crazy fun things like going night swimming,” Marshall said. “We also took summer trips to places like Canada, Sunriver and even Arizona.”

Being with her family all the time, she was able to observe her Aunt Kathy who works as a reporter for KGW News.

“We always had the news on in the house,” Marshall said. “So I think that is a reason why I want to someday be a reporter, too.”

But not just any kind of reporter. From a young age of three months old, she was also exposed to football. Marshall’s family was always going to Beaver games, which she describes as “loud, fun, and energetic.” That too has also led to her desire to be a sports reporter.

Even though she is only 14 years old, Marshall already has a plan in mind.

“I want to go to college in Boston, and eventually live there. I love the city and all the fun things there are to do. Plus the market is good and most media happens on the east coast.”

All these factors contribute to to her lifelong dream of becoming a sports reporter.

Although Marshall would be away from her family, she would be turning her family inspired dreams into a reality.
