I'm a recent graduate of Central College in Pella, Iowa with a degree in English and history. I believe that the past has connections with the present and future, and that it is important to study our past to understand who we are today. Both history and English provide the portal, and it is my passion to provide new perspectives to help people understand the subjects. While I studied abroad, I interned at the National Army Museum in London, in exhibits. That experience has taught me that there is nothing more rewarding than watching someone make connections between one event and another, or finally understand that extended metaphor.
