I have a penchant for service and an addiction to travel. I look to the future. I ask the right questions and bring the big picture into view. I am interested in the intersections of creative fields and intersectionality in social justice. I’m an old soul who dreams in color. Hi, I’m Bre Legan and I’m here to help the world.
I’m a Seattle-based, wanderlust-stricken twenty-something with roots in the Midwest. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from a small liberal arts school, Drury University, where I studied Writing, Graphic Design, and Photography. I used college as a tool to explore various directions in life before picking a vague inclination (and of course, learned a lot about myself and the world in the process).
I have been fortunate enough to travel extensively in the United States, thanks to a family that made travel a priority in raising awesome human beings. We’ve roadtripped to Florida, New Orleans, and all of the states west of Missouri. We’ve also visited a couple small towns in Mexico and much of southwest Canada. On my own, I’ve traveled to Guatemala and various cities in the US. Last summer, I interned in Dharamsala, India, with an international volunteer organization, Cross-Cultural Solutions. I lived and worked in a community of many cultures and traditions, generating content and running social media accounts for CCS. After a few short weeks back in the States, I picked up again and moved to Florence, Italy, where I studied art for the year at Santa Reparata International School of Art. In the summer of 2017, I completed a three-and-a-half-month backpacking trip across Europe with a good friend of mine. The following summer I spent a month in Rome, Italy, studying Islam in the West and the growing refugee crisis. I had planned on backing Eastern Europe, but got caught in a riot and nearly lost my life. I cut that trip short and now I’m working a Real Adult Job with Alexander Hamilton Scholars as their Marketing & Program Coordinator. Some potential goals for my future currently include the Fulbright Program, Peace Corps, United Nations, and a bunch of things I cannot possibly imagine right now.
Obviously, I love travel.
I also love photography, videography, writing, reading, painting, watching documentaries and Wes Anderson films, and perusing YouTube for tutorials on things I will probably never need to know how to do. My outfit of choice includes black t-shirts, outrageous sweaters and jackets, jeans, red shoes, and hats. I am a big fan of aliens, beards, hairless (and hairy) cats, and my pal, Bigfoot. I’m a vegetarian-in-progress and an incessant tripper (not just anyone can say they’ve fallen into the canals of Venice, amirite??). I’m snarky and I laugh too much. I’m allergic to cinnamon.
Oh, and I enjoy learning and enriching human life, and strive to improve the overall human condition.
If you find me endearing (or maybe just pitiful), you should follow along with my wandering and rambling ways!
