Meagan Phillips


My name is Meagan Phillips, and I'm majoring in Critical Animal Studies (self-designed). I enjoy working and living with animals (especially cats) and plan to attend graduate school to study Anthrozoology or Film Studies. Later in life I hope to found a cat sanctuary and become a novelist, illustrator, animal rights activist, and vegan chef. For my Sharp Seminar journalism piece, I investigated the cat cafe phenomenon in North America, focusing on Cat Town Cafe in Oakland, CA, the first cat cafe to open in the U.S.
