Megan is currently a second-year in Sixth College majoring in Mathematics-Computer Science. She believes that there is always more you can learn from others and especially appreciates hearing about others’ life stories and how they have come to be the person they are today. Due to her past background in volunteer and non-profit work, helping impoverished communities and those in need has grown to be an important value of hers; thus, she hopes to continue her passion for giving back to her community in the future. Moreso, after dabbling in both design and data engineering in her past internships, it has shown her a love for programming and its puzzle-solving aspects. Megan is looking to pursue a career in Software Engineering where she can intertwine these passions by utilizing tech to solve current day problems and benefit society in some form.
Megan strives to live life in the moment, enjoy the simple things, and make memories that she will cherish forever. As part of this, she aims to go out of her comfort zone more and check skydiving and cliff jumping off her bucket list soon. With her brothers, she enjoys going on spontaneous adventures, trying new food and boba spots, having meaningful conversations into late hours of the night, and blasting songs to scream along to in the car. In her personal time, she can often be found immersed in a book, making Spotify playlists and exploring new music, or chasing sunsets. Megan is thankful to be able to consider AKPsi her second home and is beyond excited to continue making memories with this family of driven and compassionate individuals. Whether it’s a 2 am run to Raising Cane’s, a study sesh in Geisel, or a heart-to-heart conversation, she knows she’ll be having a blast with her brothers.
