Madeline Neve graduated in 2019 from UW Eau Claire after studying German and American sign language. She spent 2019 in Saalfelden, Austria, gaining lots of classroom experience through the USTA program. Not wanting to leave Austria, she became an Au Pair for the summer and was able to explore more of Austria, better her language skills, and spend her summer helping with homeschool and doing lots of arts and crafts with the kids. Madeline is very excited to start the school year and is hoping that the students at the Gymnasium don't want to talk about farts as much as the children did over the summer.
Graz will be a big change, as it is a much larger city than last year, but Madeline is up for the challenge and excited to play rugby and hopefully recruit some students to play as well.
