Avery Morgan

Supply Chain Management and Language

Biography

The summer after her sophomore year, Avery Morgan volunteered as a research assistant to a German scientist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute on Barro Colorado Island, Panama. This experience redirected her goals towards working to learn more about the world outside of the United States and how she can equip herself to solve problems on a global scale. Eventually, this led to working with the indigenous Ch’orti Mayan community in Guatemala while producing a documentary on the cycle of poverty. She was a varsity lacrosse captain, public speaker at school recruiting events, and Vice President of the Georgia chapter of National Beta Club. At UT, she hopes to become fluent in French and Portugese and obtain a Business degree in supply chain management. She would like to study policy and continue to work to combat the effects of poverty, and study abroad as much as possible. One day, she wants to work for the UN or establish an organization that effectively addresses the issues of extreme poverty.
