Archival Assistant

June - August 2019 • Bishop Hill, IL

What I liked

I loved being in a completely different environment than Seattle. I had to learn to adapt in an area without a grocery store close by, without a car, and being alone in a small town. The archival experience was immensely helpful in seeing how collections are curated and how gifts are accepted to museums and archives. I also learned a lot from a generation who I wouldn't have been able to access being in Seattle.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had taken the chance to engage in some more of the community events held in Bishop Hill than I did.
