Funding a Masters at Al Akhawayn Morocco

After a year studying abroad in Morocco as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar (District 7770, Est. S.C), I am inspired to do revolutionary research on the Peace Corps' mission here. I have the drive and direction, but need your help to make it a reality.


Al Akhawayn University has offered me an opportunity to conduct this groundbreaking research for my thesis; thereby, finishing my Masters in International Studies & Diplomacy program with a concentration in North African Relations.

With your help and support, I will take on new learning opportunities and continue the work I began with Rotary with renewed optimism and childish enthusiasm.

I am a Lowcountry native and College of Charleston alumni. My education background is in political science, public administration, and the French language, which inspired me to pursue a career in international government or nonprofit administration.

I am incredibly blessed by the support from my fabulous friends and family back home. Although I miss them dearly, their shameless encouragement inspires me to finish the academic mission I have started in Morocco.

I am also grateful for my former co-workers and mentors from the Gaillard Performance Hall Foundation, the College of Charleston, and the Department of Homeland Security who have instilled a sense of service, humility, and humor which continues to inspire me to pursue a public service.

My hobbies include drawing, a talent I get from my father, John Quinn of Quinn Signs & Artworks. I also derive a holistic sense of health from my mother, a neuromuscular massage therapist. I have two hilarious and clever brothers, Ryan and Cameron, who keep me entertained and on my toes.
