My name is Madison Mercado, and I am a student journalist based in Boston, MA and Olympia, WA.

I’m studying Journalism and International Relations at Boston University, expected to graduate in May 2024. I’m currently an associate editor for the city news team at The Daily Free Press, the independent student newspaper at BU. Aside from reporting on the newspaper, I also write for the Her Campus chapter at BU and am the graphic designer for the social media and marketing team at BU’s College of Communication Student Government.

In my free time, you can find me working on personal graphic design projects or writing blog posts about lifestyle, introspective thoughts of mine, and anything else that comes to mind.

I’m also available for freelance work in news reporting and graphic design. Don’t hesitate to reach out!
