My background is in history and classics, so I am all about history museums and ancient art/artifacts. Besides the subject area, I have always enjoyed visiting the museum and have a deep appreciation for all that they do for the community.
As I am going through the MEX program I am realizing that my true passion lies in programming and community engagement, which from my observation the Museum of Florida History does a great job at! I wanted to be a part of an organization that the community regards highly, and the Museum fits.
3. What unique abilities/traits do you possess that gave you an advantage when pursuing this position?
In the interviewing process, they asked me a lot of questions that I was able to answer confidently because of the MEX program and all of the opportunities that have come my way since my acceptance into FSU. Not only do I feel confident in my abilities to complete the tasks that will be thrown my way during work, but this program has pushed me and intrigued me to follow what I believe will be most beneficial for the community. As long as I cover all of the museum’s bases, they have basically given me free reign to conduct tours and programs however I would like. I am super excited about this because I really have a chance to put what I have been learning in class into action…and see the results!
