Scholar Class – 2013
Megan is from Tucson, Arizona, and after her Mom died of breast cancer while she was in high school, she majored in Spanish and Biology with plans to go to medical school. At her undergraduate campus, she started Duke University's first magazine, WOMYN, for LGBTQ women and their allies with an incredible team of 3 editors and a 23 person-review board. While at Duke she also served on the Gender Violence Intervention and Prevention Task Force to advocate against gender violence, sexual assault, and harassment on campus. She believes in the importance of being an active, self-educating ally and participated in the Native American Student Alliance and the Black Student Alliance. Megan took a year off before medical school to work in Mexico City at UNAM with a Fulbright Scholarship, and is currently interested in transgender health advocacy and research as well as pro-bono health care.
