MEGAN BURNS | ACCOUNT FELLOW
Megan grew up in Vancouver, Washington but has called Portland home for the last 8 years. She is currently a junior at Portland State University and was initially interested in international development justice, specifically in Sub-Saharan East Africa. After spending a semester studying political ecology in Tanzania, she refocused her attention back on Portland. She hopes to work directly with urban development through community engagement and design research in order to foster the participation necessary to create a liveable space for all Portlanders. Currently, Megan is studying community development and sustainable urban development as an honors student at Portland State University.
