Megan Irving
Megan Irving: Freshman at Wagner College

Welcome HawkTalkers! I want to introduce you all to one of my fellow bloggers, Megan Irving. She is from Chicago, Illinois and has always wanted to live in New York City. She wants this beautiful city to be her home forever. She stated that her two favorite places to visit in the city are The Village and The Highline. For those of you who have not gone there, those two places are a must; they are very beautiful places.

What brought her to Wagner, you might ask? Well, first off was the location. Who would refuse the offer of having the best of both worlds? A nice quiet community and the magical Manhattan just a ferry ride away! She also liked the fact that Wagner has small classrooms, so she can build a strong relationship with all of her professors. What Megan expects to gain from Wagner is to get a broader view of the world and to be successful in this diverse world. Megan definitely came to the right place!

Leaving some of the formality away, what is Megan really like? She is one of the most interesting people I have met in a very long time. The energy she has is absolutely amazing! There are very few people who still enjoy classics and she is one of them. I could spend hours talking to her about literature. Her favorite book is Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris, basically a collection of essays about Sedaris growing up in the world, his life in other countries, and other events. Megan's favorite movie is The Blues Brothers, a classic movie from 1980. Based on her favorite book and movie, I imagined her idol would be someone who is not known by many people, but I was wrong. Megan's idol is in fact well known to the public; it's Tina Fey! She really did show an enthusiasm for her when I asked who her idol was, I mean... it's Tina Fey! Finally, I asked her who she would bring from the dead to spend a day with, and she said Gilda Radner. Gilda was one of the original writers for the famous show Saturday Night Live, and once again she amazed me with her choice.

Megan is a very interesting person in every sense of the word, and if you see her around, do start up a conversation with her. You will not regret it.
