Cathleen McGovern ’16
Albright Fellow 2016

Cathleen McGovern
Cathleen is a senior music major at Wellesley, focusing on ethnomusicology and how music permeates communities.

Originally accepted into the Albright Institute last year, Cathleen spent Spring 2015 abroad at the University of Edinburgh studying traditional Gaelic song and Wagner while also exploring around Europe for the first time. The following summer she worked with the ONE Campaign for her Albright internship. ONE is a nonprofit organization focused on the eradication of poverty, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. As a digital intern, she worked closely with the nearly seven-million-strong organization and involved herself in many aspects of developing their online presence.

On campus, Cathleen is the musical director of the Wellesley Widows, a member of the co-op Cafe Hoop, a teammate on the rugby team, and the House President of Munger Hall.
