“I interned at the Westport Museum because it is a great opportunity to be able to research everyone’s story whether it was traditionally shared in the past or not. Especially as a Latina, whose history is typically not discussed, I am excited to have the opportunity to share those untold stories and bring light to a different side of history.​​​​​​​”
