Here are 5 Things We Learned about Meagan.
What made you...you?
All the good, the bad, and the ugly experiences wrapped up together. I think I am me because I followed the path that made no sense but I believed (it) would make sense. Even on the worst days I look for what did I learn, what can I take from this.
When are you happiest?
When I’m laughing. When I’m connecting with someone who gets what I’m saying and I get what they are saying and the world feels smaller and I don’t feel weird and misunderstood.
Would you rather have a muse or be a muse?
Who do you admire?
JR, Guerrilla Girls, Swoon, Serena Williams, Ava Duvernay, Billie Jean King, Paula Wallace, Sara Blakely, Susan Cain, Lauren Bush, should I go on?
What is important?
It’s important that we find some things in life that we want to make better. It’s important to be grateful every day, every hour.
