Guinevere Beirne is junior majoring in English Literature and minoring in Business Administration. She’s from north central West Virginia in a small place called Gilmer County. Guinevere started the EPG program the summer of her sophomore year, and she believes it has taught her a new way of thinking that she would have never achieved without the program. Her goal in life is to make a change in the world—whether it be a national change, a regional change, or just a change if a few people’s lives, she wants to make her work count, and she believes that EPG has worked wonders in teaching her how she can implement that change. While she isn’t sure what her future occupation will look like, her current goal is to someday own a bakery that will employ individuals that are homeless as well as feed the homeless population within the area.
