Advisor |English 2020
Director of Test Events 2018-19 • Secretary/Webmaster 2017-18

Hey! I'm Megan She, Advisor and former Test Events Director of SciOly at Cornell. I first started my SciOly career in middle school competing for The Pembroke Hill School in Kansas City, MO where I fell in love with Experimental Design and Disease Detectives. A decade later, I'm a senior majoring in English but I identify as the ampersand in Arts & Sciences. I love working an espresso bar, making far too many Spotify playlists, and dabbling in conversational design. On campus, I'm also involved with Cornell Design & Tech Initiative and Cornell Mars Rover. I'm always looking for another stamp in my passport, the best brie out there, and solid Medium recommendations. And I'm always a sucker for bad jokes.
