Rowan is a student at Portland State University where they are double majoring in Women's Studies, and Sexuality Gender and Queer Studies. They developed a passion around sexual and domestic violence prevention through their volunteer work at Portland State's Women's Resource Center, after which they began volunteering as an advocate at the Sexual Assault Resource Center. Rowan's academic work centers on queer and fat studies and research and they are excited to continue to weave together their social justice passions as they continue their education to a Masters in Social Work.

In their personal time, Rowan enjoys video games, dungeons and dragons, art, playing with their dog, and activism.
