Madison Cota is eighteen years old and recently graduated from Vermont Academy. She plans to attend Lasell College this fall, where she will major in fashion design and play collegiate level basketball. Sports have been a huge part of her life; she was a three sport Varsity athlete for all four years of high school. Madison will be graduating from Lasell with a degree in fashion design and a desire to be a fashion designer for strong, independent women. Fitness and a healthy lifestyle are important to her because she struggled with her weight as a child. Because of this struggle, Madison has gotten involved with her all-time favorite organization: Girls on the Run. Madison loves reading, traveling, horse back riding and doing anything that gets her adrenaline going.
