This week one of my dear friends and coworkers left Austin to move to the great state of Oregon and pursue a new adventure. I first met Megan in July 2012 when we started working together at a small nonprofit as AmeriCorps VISTAs. We became friends quickly because of the similarity of our situations (being completely new to Austin).
Originally from Oregon, Megan moved to Austin to learn more about herself and develop her professional skills. Over the course of the eight months, I’ve grow to love and appreciate Megan for her creativity, passion to help others and generosity. She’s always willing to extend a helping hand, share funny YouTube videos or spend time in conversation with you. For these and many more reasons, I will genuinely miss Megan. She’s been a blessing in my life and the life of others. I thought it appropriate to document my appreciation for Megan through this blog, I think everyone reading about this should know how wonderful she is!
So, here’s to you Meg! I wish you the best in Oregon. We’ll miss you in Austin, but you’ve got so many exciting opportunities ahead of you. I guess I’ll be making a trip to Portland in the near future!
