She/Her & They/Them
Madison Klementyn is a gender queer woman residing in Portland Oregon after visiting every other state. As a curious geek, she has always had an indomitable thirst for technology and art. True to these passions, she managed a mid-sized 3D printer farm in an artist studio for 2.5 years, starting in 2015. In 2018 Madison organized a Transgender Day of Remembrance event for her school and community. Then, in 2019 Madison achieved Point Foundation's Community College Scholarship. She volunteers with her University to organize the annual Queer Students of Color Conference. In 2016 Madison set precedent in Multnomah County Circuit Court for her innovative interpretation of the Oregon Revised Statutes. What she helped roll into commonplace was the ability for citizens in the circuit court to invoke rules previously thought reserved for use by only Landlords. In 2018, She became a pro bono Notary Public, assisting students and her community with gender change documentation, advanced directives, and court document preparation. Madison is an undergraduate student studying Computer Engineering, and in her free time moonlights as an aspiring Roller Derby Jammer (when she is not injuring herself at the skate park).
