Morgan received her bachelor’s degree in Gender & Women’s Studies with a focus on Educational Rights and Equity from the University of California, Berkeley. During her time there, she interned for various educational non-profits, including 826 Valencia and Sage Project, as well as serving as a program intern for UC Berkeley’s Gender Equity Center. Morgan spent her senior year working on an independent research project, which upon completion received Department Honors and was published on an educational database.
After graduating, Morgan traveled to Washington D.C where she interned for Girls Inc. National. In this role, she worked to identify and promote legislation that supported the work of Girls Inc., while also working with elected officials to secure funding and opportunities for Girls Inc. participants. During her internship, she fell in love with the Girls Inc. mission and the idea of graduate school.
Following her internship, Morgan attended California State University of Monterey Bay’s Master of Social Work Program with a full scholarship and graduated with a master’s degree in Social Work, as well as a credential in School Social Work and Child Welfare in the spring of 2021. During her graduate program, Morgan completed two practicums at local public K-8th grade schools where she supported students by meeting their mental, emotional, and academic needs through individual and group counseling. Through this work, she fell in love with working in educational programming and supporting youth in post-secondary planning.
Morgan is thrilled to be back with Girls Inc., as the Post-Secondary Planning Coordinator and Ambassador Club program lead.
