in 500 words or less state why you wish to participate and why you feel this internship will be beneficial to you.

I am writing in response to the summer interpretation internship at Old Sturbridge Village. Since childhood I have been fascinated by history; whether by reading 19th century novels or reproducing knitting patterns from the 1930's, preserving and reproducing the cultural history of the United States has always been of interest to me. Old Sturbridge Village is one of the most accurate and elaborate recreations of 19th century American life on the east coast. Being part of such an experience would fulfill a lifelong dream of working in a living history museum.

In a living history museum setting I believe I have much to contribute. I have experience working with animals, both in a museum setting and in an animal shelter. While my specialty is not in American History, studying international relations has given me a broad understanding of world history in such diverse areas as Latin America and Africa. Having spent a semester in France as a study abroad student, I have learned to work well under pressure and to be adaptable.

I believe that this program would be beneficial to me. By understanding one's own cultural and historical development, it is possible to better understand the world as it exists today. I would also like to work in the field of development. I feel that by understanding the modes of existence before the industrial revolution, and the changed that occurred after, I would be better prepared to do work in parts of the world that have not yet undergone the historical changes that occurred in the developed world in the 19th and 20th century.
