Dancer Profile: Engineering House’s Maddy Cook
THON children oftentimes look up to dancers as superheroes this weekend. One dancer, Maddy Cook, has taken that to heart, choosing to sport a cape for the weekend.
Cook, a sophomore, is representing Penn State’s Engineering House, an on-campus special living option for engineers in McKee Hall. Although the group consists of only around ten people, Cook said their support at THON 2014 has been “fantastic so far.”
Although she’s only a sophomore, Maddy isn’t a stranger to THON. Cook was a Moraler last year and already has an understanding of what goes into surviving the weekend. She’s especially grateful for her moraler, Amanda Thoet, who’s given Maddy “fantastic support so far”. After all, if anyone knows how to support a dancer, it would be Cook.
“Seeing all of the families last year made me realize that dancing was the ultimate showing of making a difference,” said Cook.
Her favorite memory of the weekend so far? Watching a THON child weaving in and out of people on the floor without a worry in the world.
The slogan on the back of her shirt is fittingly “Hakuna Matata” and you can just tell by her attitude that she truly has no worries.
