Raven S. – Arts & Culture, Summer 2018
“My internship is at the Tower of David Museum and I couldn’t be happier. This is my second internship at a museum, previously working at one with a natural science focus. What makes this internship so incredible is the feeling of being a part of the living history of Jerusalem. I thought I had a good idea of what working here would be like prior to beginning, but every day my expectations are exceeded, challenged, and changed. Each day I will explore a new portion of the citadel, discover more about something I’ve already seen, and am given opportunities to share my knowledge – new found and otherwise – with others.
My days are very varied, which is refreshing. Typically, I am working with foreign visitors giving tours or working in the Marketing Department. When I step back outside, I always find myself in awe of the beautiful, long-standing stonework surrounding me. Working here has certainly set the bar high for any future experiences I will have!”
