Madyson Woodburn What Does It Mean To Be a MUSKIE?!! For all of those who don’t know me, my name is Madyson Woodburn and I am standing here today to answer a very important question for you all. What does it mean to be a Muskie? Well first of all, they do not travel with others.. They are NOT followers. They are described as having the trait of individuality. They make their own path. That is what it means to be a Muskie. It’s to simply be your OWN Muskie! Express the things that make you different than everybody else around you. Don’t hide them like I did. You see, when I was a Freshman, I would compare myself to everyone around me. On snapchat, Instagram, anything… I would constantly say to myself, ‘why can’t I be like them? ’ I would look in the mirror and see a shy, timid, and lost girl. But then, two years later in Mr. Frank’s class when I was introduced to the phrase “Imitation is Suicide,” I knew I was hurting myself internally and needed to focus on just being ME.

Unformatted text preview: When I did, I didn’t feel lost anymore. I felt found. In Luke 15: 24 it says, “ for this son of mine was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found.' And they began to celebrate.” I didn’t only celebrate finding what it meant to be a Muskie; I celebrated finding who God created me to be. Madyson Woodburn So be yourself. Do and be the things that make you YOU! But the real question is: what are the things that make you your OWN Muskie? If you can’t answer that question, I want that to be your goal throughout the time you have here at JGHS. I would like to thank everyone here today for making such a strong impact in my life. Without the support from my friends, classmates, and teachers… I wouldn’t know the true meaning of being a Muskie. Good luck to all of the nominees, love you guys!...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
