My name is Megan Howell, and I am a rising sophomore at Earlham College. I am planning on double-majoring in Spanish and Human Development and Social Relations. I am interested in helping others, and bettering myself each day. I enjoy rock climbing, photography, and cooking. This summer I am looking forward to learning about what it is like to work at a museum, plan large and small events, and working with people of all ages. My goals for this summer are to be able to work with the public more efficiently, and overall step up to becoming the epitome of someone with excellent leadership qualities. I want to begin to create a professional name for myself to future employers, and learning institutions. With this internship I plan to better myself, and prepare myself to take on the responsibility of planning, and completing goals. I want to be able to work with children very well, because I plan to become a speech/language pathologist after I complete graduate school.
About This Internship:
JMM summer interns gain hands-on experience working in a variety of capacities at the Joseph Moore Museum, including leading natural history tours to interested groups (usually children), giving planetarium shows, handling and caring for live reptiles, running the museum gift shop, holding public events, and more. The interns may also be involved in creating and running activities at community events in which the JMM is invited to participate.
