Hello! I’m Meaghan — nice to meet you!
I’m a 22-year-old writer, originally from the Midwest, but now living & working in the beautiful state of Colorado! After graduating from college, I was lucky enough to land my dream job as the Assistant to the Editor-in-Chief at Seventeen magazine in New York City. (Before you think The Devil Wears Prada, check this out.)
Earlier this year, I took a huge leap of faith to pursue a new opportunity managing social media for Young Life, a christian non-profit that’s aimed toward teenagers and college students. I’ve been involved with Young Life ever since middle school, so this was definitely a dream opportunity that I couldn’t ignore. After a month of agonizing over leaving New York, I finally agreed to put those dreams on hold to pursue a new adventure out west. It’s been nothing but beautiful and challenging and so, so good.
I moved to New York City in 2013 with just two suitcases, a few hundred dollars in my bank account, and a heart full of hope and prayers that I could make something happen for myself. I’m a baker, half marathoner, and the girl you’d call if you needed someone to recite Taylor Swift or NEEDTOBREATHE lyrics at the drop of a hat. Seriously, try me.
I’m here to speak about what it means to follow your dreams, no matter where they lead you. To give you a little hope on the hard days, a little bit of encouragement when it feels like you can’t stand on your own two feet, and a little motivation to go after even your craziest desires. (I’ll give you a little hint… the crazy desires are the ones you definitely want to listen to.)
I’m honored and very humbled to have been featured as a rising journalist & young professional on The Daily Front Row, Her Campus, The Internista, The Smart Girls Guide, College Fashion, The Preppy Post Grad, My Gorgeous Chaos, and Ed2010.
