MEET THE INTERNS>>EMILY

Last (but certainly not least) for this semester’s interns is Emily. Take it away…

What are you studying and where? I am majoring in history at the University of Missouri-St. Louis

Emily is hard at work giving tours and working on our National Historic Landmark application. Click her picture to learn more about internship and volunteer opportunities at CHM!

Why Campbell House? I was contacted by a professor about the possibility of doing an internship at the Campbell House. After a little research on the house, I thought it would be a great place for experience.

What are you working on at CHM? Gaining more knowledge on the Campbells and their home in order to give tours and editing/updating an application to be a National Historic Landmark (Editor’s Note: Emily is picking up where several of our interns have left off. Its a lengthy process, so we’ll be at it for a while, but right now it is Emily’s torch to bear!).

When you aren’t having a blast at Campbell House, what are you doing? When school is in session, I mainly focus on that and work. Not a lot of free time…When I do have free time, I mainly just hang out with friends or go to Blues games when it’s the season (Let’s go Blues!).

What is your favorite thing about CHM so far? The fact that visitors receive a docent-led tour. When I visited before I started the internship, I was very happy with this aspect. Tours are much more interesting to me than looking on my own.

iPhone or Android? Android

Favorite Color? Blue

Favorite Band/singer? The Beatles

Andy Warhol said that everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame. What happened in your 15 minutes? That’s tough…I guess one of my proudest achievements is receiving the department award in Spanish during my senior year. At a ceremony my Spanish teacher said great things about me which was very nice!

If you found yourself in Kafka’s Metamorphosis, transformed into an insect, what would it be and why? This is probably lame, but I would say a butterfly because I feel like seeing a transformation of yourself could be very exciting and powerful!
