In 2016, I began volunteering at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA. Since then, I have gotten experience from the Texas Memorial Museum and the Museum of the American Revolution where I worked until COVID-19 struck. With my B.A. in history, I am hoping to pursue a career in informal education and am planning to pursue a master's upon graduating. I am especially passionate about the opportunity to educate young audiences and their families because I believe that the "sticky moments" educators have with children can go on to impact the rising generations in important ways. I believe that knowledge is power, and I would enjoy the opportunity to educate in any STEAM and humanities related field. I feel that cultural institutions, now more than ever, have the ability to make large impacts on their guests whether that is to bring entertainment or education through these recently very difficult times. I am looking for a part-time job, but am also hoping to begin working full-time shortly once I have graduated next year.
