Get to Know Megan
What are your hobbies/interest?
My hobbies and interests include art, listening to music, working with high school students at my local church, and traveling. Along with teaching Colorguard, being part of the E board for Amigos Latinos, and working at my church, I also volunteer at the Be Hope Immigration Center.
What language(s) do you speak?
I am fluent in English and Spanish
How would you describe your personality?
I am a very outgoing person. I love meeting new people and learning new things. I tend to have more of a type-A personality (I love to-do lists and planners!).
What experience do you have as a mentor?
I have been a peer coach with the Peer Success Program since the Spring 2020 semester. I love being able to be a peer coach and encourage fellow students at WSU. I think acknowledging every accomplishment (not just the big ones) is so important. Being at the age that most college students are, I think that learning the balance of giving yourself grace and having good expectations is very important, so I love helping my mentees find that line.
What are you passionate about?
I am extremely passionate about bringing awareness to social justice issues. I want to use my voice for those that are unable to use theirs.
