I am a creator, a manifestor and an ideas machine. A vibrant and communicative leader in visual esthetics and storytelling, I have cultivated a career as a performing artist, creative producer, writer, stylist and educator.

I strive to challenge the perception of gender bias roles and the parallel between the lack of female stories documented in history and the value of women in society. A mother of three, I am inspired by maternal and child development and influenced by the impact of art on health, culture and society.

My role models are anyone who is brave enough to speak the truth, learn from their mistakes and be compassionate enough to allow others the time and space to do the same.
If you could contribute to fixing one social issue – which one and why?
The gender gap, and more specifically the motherhood penalty. By addressing the motherhood penalty and changing the patriarchal structures in society we foster a care economy that improves life balance, physical and mental health, relationships with partners and children, and promotes a more inclusive and diverse society. And, by addressing this issue, we have an increased capacity and a stronger, more connected life and workforce, to address other issues.
Three words that describe Megan.
