About Dakota:

As a senior at Salem State University, I am eager to start my career come May of 2021. I am a double major in Public History and English, and I am working as an intern for Lynn Museum to help me open up opportunities and narrow down my likes and dislikes. Currently, I am working a podcast for the museum that details both specific objects on display as well as the stories that got them there. I’m excited to see where this opportunity takes me!
