Miss A Columnist

Megan Davison is the Chicago Editor for Miss A. She is a 23 year old living on the south side of Chicago. Megan recently moved to Chicago from the East Coast after having graduated from The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. in May 2012. During her time in D.C. she received her bachelor’s in Anthropology and Women’s Studies. Megan is currently serving as a Lasallian Volunteer, working in fundraising and communications for the Christian Brothers of the Midwest. She lives in community with 8 Christian Brothers and two volunteers. Megan loves coaching and tutoring the students of San Miguel Middle School in Back of the Yards.

Currently, Megan writes and explores the city of Chicago as much as she can! She has found that the best way to do that is running! Whether it’s up Michigan Avenue towards the Loop, over to Bridgeport, or down to the lakefront; running is the best way to take in the city and get a little workout in. Megan loves thrift shopping all over the city and scoring new finds at unique stores. While she has enjoyed deep-dish pizza, she still loves her thin crust! She loves coffee, reading the personal journal section of The Wall Street Journal.
