Megan Quiñones is a Palmer Scholar studying 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 aervices department, she assisted community liaisons that support service work in the local Tacoma community.
Following completion of her degree, she plans on taking a gap year to pursue food justice advocacy work and then ultimately pursue a Ph.D. in ethnic or global studies.
