FIG Assistant: Margaret Bird
Hi everyone! I'm Margaret, and I'll be your FIG Assistant this fall. I will be a third-year student at the UO. I am majoring in Romance Languages, and I have minors in Linguistics and Global Health. I am also in the Clark Honors College. This is my second year as an FA, but I loved being in a FIG last year. It helped me find interesting classes and make friends in my classes, so I look forward to getting to know you all!
I'm from Denver, CO. I love to hike, camp, and learn about plants. I have been beekeeping for 10 years. I also do karate. I love to read. I speak Spanish, and I'm learning French and Swahili! I also work as a research assistant for a professor studying the history of disease (specifically malaria) and medicine in Africa. I'm excited to help you get to know the UO this fall. Please feel free to email me with any questions or just to introduce yourself (and maybe recommend a book)!
