  • Maia Henderson

    Maia Henderson '21

    Major:   English, Creative Writing  

    "My name is Maia, and I am from small but mighty Forrest City, Arkansas! I enjoy absolutely everything having to do with the arts. I sing, play an instrument, do a little acting, write poetry, and I am a movie fanatic. After earning my associate's degree following high school graduation, it took little to no time for me to decide on making Hendrix the next stop on my journey. I have truly treasured the decision and my experience thus far. After my Hendrix journey concludes, the plan is to choose a road that will either place me at the front of a courtroom or a classroom."

    Madeleine Scott HDX Connect

    Madeleine Scott '20

    Major:  Biology and French

    "I grew up moving around and the wanderlust stuck - until I made Arkansas my home! I've spoken French for almost ten years, but through the Odyssey program, Hendrix gave me the chance to apply my language skills professionally in a biomedical research lab in France. In addition to the laboratory techniques I learned while there, I was able to establish professional connections, perfect my French, and even co-author a paper!"
