My name is Meagan Mobley. On October 20th, I will be 23 years old. I have a mother and father that support me in everything that I do and two brothers that mean the world to me. I am originally from Memphis, Tennessee but my heart is in New York City. My major is Integrated Marketing Communications with a specialization in Public Relations. It is the best major I have ever had. (and I’ve had quite a few) I have always considered myself to be more of a city girl rather than a small town girl, but I am glad I chose to further my education in beautiful Oxford, Mississippi. I am a full-time student by day and part-time bartender on The Square by night. It really is the best of both worlds! I have a passion for art, fitness, and music. My dream job is to be an Art Director for a magazine in the one and only, New York City one day.
