Morgan Conville is currently pursuing a Master’s in International Development and Economic Policy at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and a K-12 Second Language Acquisition Teaching license from the University of North Carolina at Asheville. During her undergraduate years, Morgan made a significant impact on campus by serving as a Resident Assistant, Campus Ambassador, and Orientation Leader. She also was a member of the Model United Nations (MUN) Club, serving as President during her junior year. Her involvement in MUN sparked her passion for migrant rights and interest in global economic policy. For her undergraduate research project, Morgan transcribed and translated the narratives of Hispanic female migrant workers in the local community, which were subsequently published.
After graduation, Morgan dedicated three years to teaching Heritage Spanish and Spanish 1 at a Title I middle school in Houston, Texas. As a heritage Spanish teacher, Morgan focused on the development of academic skills such as reading and writing for students who lacked formal Spanish education. Additionally, she facilitated the exploration of themes such as identity, history, and the cultural impact of bilingualism to allow students to develop confidence as bilingual speakers. Through her background experiences and her current studies, she aspires to develop the practical and analytical skills necessary to pursue her desired career in the United States Foreign Service.
