Moore is unique to me because of the teachers and students. The faculty here are extremely dedicated to their work and more than willing to help students throughout our four years. With my fellow classmates, there are so many similarities - and differences - between us that help us get along so well, even across majors. That's what made my time here especially memorable.

During the summer of 2011, I had two internships. Half of my summer was spent in Philadelphia at the Philadelphia Sketch Club. There, I did a bit of everything: I set up gallery showings and took them down, maintained receptions, aided with workshops and handled special event correspondence.

I worked at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art in New York City during the second half of my summer. I had two main duties: I worked at the front desk to greet visitors, take admission, field calls, and handle merchandise sales. My other job was to organize and archive original goods and artwork that was donated to the museum, and do condition reports for each and every piece.

The internship fellowship was beneficial to me over the summer. It helped to significantly reduce the commuting costs that were required to travel back and forth between Philadelphia and New York. I don't think I would have been able to do both internships without it.
