Morgan took part in the "My Scar, My Story" campaign on Instagram. She opened up about why she participated in this to Hidden Remote. "I had a C-section 19 months ago now with my son, River. And, because of that, just my body growing and stretching–having a scar from my C-section–I had to look at my body in a whole different way and I really connected with Gold Bond's campaign of 'My Scar, My Story' where it's encouraging people to share their real skin stories. Embrace their imperfections, embrace their scars."

Morgan tells Hidden Remote that she is all about embracing herself. "After I gave birth, my whole mindset changed into 'What is my definition of beauty?' and scars are beautiful. I just really started embracing motherhood and that came with embracing who I am and my body regardless of any imperfections. So that's why this campaign is super important to me and why I'm hoping it'll encourage other people to share their scar story and their real skin stories."


She Hikes

Morgan spends a lot of time outside. One thing she likes to do is go hiking. She shares a lot of posts on Instagram of herself hiking. Morgan shared this video of herself and her son hiking in the mountains. She captioned the post, "Happiness. The 90% of my life you don't see." Morgan also shared this video of herself hiking through Zion, captioning it, "Highly recommend having a lil adventure out in Zion."


She Swims

Morgan likes to swim to stay in shape. In this set of photos she shared from a vacation on Instagram, she is seen in a pool. Morgan captioned the post, "Paradise is all about perspective, we are always in paradise but there's something truly magical about grounding/journaling on a white sand beach and releasing whatever no longer serves me into the ocean. 🌊 Forever grateful to be co creating this life. Highly recommend this resort it was stunning and super accommodating if you have lil ones."


She Speaks Out

During the 2020 Black Lives Matter movement, Morgan spoke up about how black people are portrayed in the media, and how black characters are portrayed on sitcoms. She sent out this Tweet saying, "Tired of how black people are portrayed in Media, tired of us being portrayed as thugs, dangerous or angry scary people. Tired of us also being used as side kick non dimensional characters to our white leads. Or only used in the ads for diversity but not actually in the show. It starts with the media."
