Celebrating Graduating Student Workers

Major: Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science, University of Pittsburgh

Future goals: Learning how to rest more and figuring out what that looks like. I also want to engage more in projects I feel passionate about: This Summer I am starting a book group and helping organize my city’s dyke march. In the future, I hope to work in digital collections or metadata at an academic archive that gives me time to pursue research around archives and memory.
