"I have learned so much already that has helped my own freelance writing business. Right now, I work as a graduate assistant for Asbury's Office of Strategic Communications and as an educator for lululemon. I'm also starting a magazine that will release sometime next year. I‘ve experienced an overwhelming wave of encouragement and mentorship from professors here."Madison Anderson ’23MA in Communication Student
