Growing up in rural New England gave me an appreciation for American history at an early age, and was a passion I knew I wanted to turn into a career. Though I came to FSU as a transfer student, and the majority of my classes have been held remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I still feel as though I have had many valuable experiences which have helped shape my future career.

What I have enjoyed the most at FSU is the faculty, and how dedicated they are to ensuring their students' success. The professors go beyond textbooks, making an effort to teach difficult history and create a safe environment where students can openly share ideas. Outside of the classroom, my professors have helped me prepare applications for graduate school, revise my resume and cover letters, and have served as supervisors for my curatorial internship at Old Sturbridge Village and my museum education internship at the Springfield Museums.

In addition to the wealth of knowledge I have gained, the most rewarding part of being at FSU is having such devoted faculty members behind me every step of the way as I navigate all the trials that attending university and starting a career can bring. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to foster such strong relationships with my professors and like-minded students at FSU.
