Meg Ross has already done a lot in her academic and professional careers. She’s an ambitious go-with-the-flow type, she says -- a good fit for adventurous journeys.

After graduating from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2010, Natalie Ziemba joined the Peace Corps and served in a rural village in Samoa, an island in the South Pacific Ocean. The two-year experience was equal parts challenging and rewarding while she taught English and reading to enthusiastic 4th through 8th graders.
