Hi there, I’m Sara! While I’m originally from New York City, I have been living in the UK for the past year and recently completed my Master’s in Public History at Royal Holloway, University of London. I am a fan of creative endeavors, indie video games, judging coffee shops by the quality of their green tea lattes, and going on all sorts of adventures, whether they are big or small.
I’ve got two favorite museums: The National Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C. and Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens back home in New York. They are both places I visited as a kid that, regardless of how much time has passed since the last time I was there, still feel just as magical as they did during my first visit.
My dream job is to have a position in the museum/cultural heritage sector that would enable me to enact real change within the industry as far as inclusivity and accessibility is concerned. While it’s amazing to see the technological advancements that have been incorporated into the museum industry, there is still a long way to go in terms of diversifying who is actually paving the pathway into the future at these museums and cultural institutions.
I think that one of the biggest issues facing girls right now is concern that their voices aren’t being listened to on a whole manner of issues. Ultimately, it is the younger generation that will be left to deal with the fallout of the current climate (literally and figuratively). It is up to us, the people who are in positions to amplify their voices, to make sure that these girls are heard.
