Meet our New Intern: Madison Wurtele


Civic Nebraska is excited to have Madison Wurtele working as part of the Voting Rights team on automatic voter registration this summer! Here are the top ten things to know about Madison!unnamed

10.I dance like nobody’s watching, and pray that they really aren’t.


9.I love food almost as much as I love my dog.


But my all time favorite is Popeyes. I heard Beyonce loves it too, so we’re basically the same person.


8.I am fueled by Diet Coke.


7.I’ve worked as a nanny, in a shoe store, at a clothing retailer, and at a hotel’s front desk. But, being a voting rights intern at Civic Nebraska has been the best by far!


6.I’m a senior journalism major at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with minors in political science, English and humanitarian affairs and human rights. After graduation, I hope to attend law school.


5.In the fourth grade, I held a single-person, silent protest over my school’s reading-level rewards system.


4.I love reading and binge watching Netflix equally.


3.I was once ran over by a bicycle.


2.I find myself very punny.


1.I am beyond thankful for my friends and family, but don’t tell them I said that.
