2019-2021 Honorable Mention

Meg Foley attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she earned degrees in English Literature and Chinese Language and Culture, and then went on to use neither of them. Since graduating, she has worked as a nanny, an advocate for people with disabilities, a paralegal, a manager at a roofing company, and an office administrator, during which time she’s developed a good sense of humor about her past self’s career expectations. When she isn't job hopping, Meg spends her free time working on her first novel, a fantasy.
