Meet the Publican: Megan
Megan is a Research Coordinator here at PUBLIC. Her British charm, obsession with the colour pink, and warm heart are just a few of our favourite things about her.
1. What Harry Potter House would you be placed in?
Ravenclaw, not just because Buzzfeed tells me so but I also because I love Luna Lovegood. She has the most magical name and she’s kind, supportive, witty and creative but doesn’t expect attention for it. I like to think I’m a few of those things.
2. What’s your favourite thing about PUBLIC?
The Publicans of course! I’m very grateful that I can call my coworkers friends. I know that each workday I’m going to smile, laugh and will be accepted for my true self (no one bats an eyelid if I’m wearing an entirely pink outfit, which is pretty chill).
3. What’s your favourite place?
In Toronto, Allan Gardens. It’s free and full of the most beautiful plants and flowers and trees and little bugs! Being there grounds me, I love it. In the overall world, I’m a big fan of general waterfronts and listening to waves lapping.
4. What’s something weird about you?
I don’t like cake. I love cheesecake but regular cake sucks to me. Also, I have a bedtime routine and I’m a weirdo about sticking to it.
5. What social impact issue means a lot to you?
Racial inequality. It makes people uncomfortable but it’s so important to reflect on how your race affects how you are treated and the opportunities you have. It really bugs me when people are willfully ignorant to their privilege.
