Outside of Nous

In her spare time...

Megan loves learning languages (she speaks French, Japanese and Tetun), exploring new corners of the world and growing her list of countries visited. But as a die-hard Francophile she frequently returns to France for cheese, wine and joie de vivre. Closer to home, she enjoys following politics and reading classical and modern literature.
