Young Meagan in Christmas sweaterWhen you were a kid, what did you dream of being when you grew up?

I dreamed of being a spy or detective. I would roam around the playground or my neighbourhood with my friends picking up clues, observing people, taking notes, leaving secret notes around, and trying to find juicy details!

What inspires you to make a difference in the world?

I’ve had the privilege to work and travel globally. The inequality and injustices I’ve observed and learned about in some of these places have been the source of my inspiration for wanting to make a difference in the world.

 

Tell us two truths and one lie

  1. When I was young, I got the chickenpox twice.
  2. I performed with a fire spinning group in the South Pacific.
  3. A warthog jumped onto my tent once while camping in Kenya.

The lie…

“When I was young, I got the chickenpox twice.”  Just joking! I’ve never had chickenpox.

What book would you recommend everyone read?

One of my favourite book series is, His Dark Materials, by Philip Pullman. I would highly recommend the first book in the series called The Golden Compass.
