13 Jun Hello Texas! (An Introduction)
Hello! This blog is going to be dedicated to my summer experience as an LHIP intern working at the San Antonio Missions Historic National Park. Being originally from Idaho, I had never been to Texas before, which made working in San Antonio a new and exciting opportunity. I drove around 27 hours to Texas and on my way got to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico. San Antonio is a lot different than what I’ve been accustomed to. It is bigger than any city I’ve lived in, with tons of activities to do. I think the biggest thing I appreciate about San Antonio is the visible influence of the Latino community here, which has made me feel at home.
At my university I’m working towards two bachelor’s degrees, one in international studies and one in Broadcasting & digital media. As a broadcasting and digital media major it excites me that I will be doing multimedia outreach during my time here at the missions. Part of my projects include making videos which will require collaboration between the education and interpretive staff at the park. I am excited to see what the rest of the summer brings!
Until next time,
