Each summer, Meghan has worked with Camp Barnabas, an organization dedicated to helping individuals with physical impairments to experience life and the outdoors in a way they have not been able to before. Meghan envisions a world where people see others’ abilities, not their inabilities.Meghan will represent Alaska at the nationally televised Miss Teen USA pageant in the spring of 2019 where she will continue to promote positive change for people of all capacities across the nation.
