Megan Quiñones is a Palmer Scholar and studied political science and sociology at Saint Martin’s University. Growing up a bi-racial woman impacted by economic poverty in Tacoma has inspired her academic studies, interest in non-profit work, and holistic focus on anti-oppression work.
During her time with the Seed Internships program, Megan interned with MultiCare Health System as their volunteer services program Intern. In the volunteer services department, she assisted community liaisons that support service work in the local Tacoma community.
Megan plans to pursue food justice advocacy work and then ultimately pursue a Ph.D. in ethnic or global studies.
