My name is Morgan Burgess and I am from Thomasville, NC. I am a junior at UNC Charlotte studying Psychology and Women’s and Gender studies. My postgraduate plans are to continue my education and study to become an occupational therapist. Occupational therapy is something I am very passionate about, as it is a nice mix of my love for healthcare and my passion for disability rights. Outside of class, I shadow occupational therapists to gain experience and am in other healthcare related clubs. I also enjoy some of the more fun clubs that UNC Charlotte offers such as Art and Mindfulness.
In my free time I like to watch YouTube, listen to music, and watch new shows on Netflix. For me, music is a big part of my life. I listen to all kinds of music, but my favorites are kpop and indie/r&b. Kpop has been a big part of my life for over 5 years and is a source of joy and comfort. My favorite musicians are Dean, Heize, Dounia, and Raveena.
Apart from my music interests, I am super interested in activism. I have been active in multiple different activist organizations at UNC Charlotte and am excited to be working with the community through Campus Pride.
