Marguerite is a junior double majoring in Communications and Global Studies. She was raised in Western North Carolina and her constant exposure to the outdoors from her parents resulted in her affinity for the outdoors and flowers, which led her to join Hope Gardens in the fall of her freshman year. She loves getting to be a part of the community Hope Gardens has built!
