Meet Your Team Nicaragua 2011 Delegates: Megan Kirschner
"My name is Megan Kirschner and I am in the Master of Public Health program at MSU. I currently live in Little Falls but my home base is in Mantua, a small town in South Jersey. I work for Health Promotion at MSU where, as an undergraduate, I was a Peer Advocate and am now a Program Coordinator. When I am not working or studying I like to spend time with my family and friends, running, traveling, or listening to music. I am an honest level-headed person who is always laughing. I truly care about people and through leading a positive and healthy lifestyle I hope to have a small impact on those around me."
