The Two Megs

Meghan Casey is 25 years old and comes to us from Vancouver, British Columbia. Meghan has a double major in Communications and Latin American studies and a Certificate in Spanish from Simon Fraser University. She is especially passionate about writing and filmmaking. Meghan has spent the last four years working with various non-profit organizations in Vancouver on media and educational projects. Most recently Meghan has focused on international development and the politics and economics around coffee and the importance of fair trade. Meghan finished the last semester of her degree at the University of San Francisco in Quito, Ecuador last spring and learned a lot living and traveling throughout that part of South America. She is excited to now have this opportunity to explore Costa Rica.

Meagan Fitzpatrick (Fitz) is 24 years old and originally from Toronto, Ontario. Meagan followed her four older siblings to Queen’s University where she received a degree in political studies. With no aspirations of heading to law school or Parliament Hill like the majority of her classmates, Meagan decided to pursue her interest in journalism. Throughout university she was involved in a number of media-related activities but it was a summer job at the Queen’s alumni magazine that convinced her to try journalism as a career. So when Meagan graduated in 2002, she moved on to the University of Western Ontario for her Master’s in Journalism. She specialized in television in her last term and made a short documentary on athletes with eating disorders. This past summer Meagan was a member of the Ottawa Citizen’s editorial board. She’s excited to be in Latin America for the first time.
