All about Madison Smith!
What’s your name? How old are you and where are you from?
My name is Madison Smith. I’m 28 years old. I was born in Cornwall, but I grew up in Hull in the north of England.
Where do you work?
I work in a bank in the city centre. It’s an international bank, but I work in the small and medium-sized businesses department. I work on the third floor, but my boss is on the fifth floor.
What do you do there?
I talk to clients about getting a loan or borrowing money for their business projects. I also look over accounts, and then report to my boss.
Do you ever have to travel as part of your job?
No, I don’t travel much as part of my job. However, I go to business conferences about three times a year.
How do you get into work?
I usually take the bus, but if the weather is nice, I cycle. The bus journey takes about 10 minutes and the cycle ride is about half an hour.
What do you do at the weekends?
I usually meet up with my friends and go to a restaurant or a bar. I don’t stay out late though because I play tennis on Saturday mornings, and I often go horse riding on Sunday morning. I sometimes go to the cinema on Sunday evenings.
