Everyone hopes that one day they will have their dream job. Though I hope not only to achieve my dream job, but to change the world with it. My greatest love in the world is that of history and my dream job is to achieve the position of Curator or Archivist at a museum. Then help influence the world that history is something that everyone should celebrate and learn from not just to let it fall into obscurity and have mistakes repeated over again.
I have even started taking steps to gain this dream job of mine. For the last couple summers I have been volunteering at the local museum, which is the Vermillion County War Museum. Also, in addition to this I have double majoring in college as a history and art history major. By having double majored, I hope to have a better chance of obtaining a position at a museum. Then, after getting a starting position I hope to work my way up the ladder to one day obtain the position of Curator or Archivist. With this job I hope to work toward making history more interesting to the public. By being interesting I hope that people will learn from the past and change the world. Then, I will have accomplished my task of changing the world as well.
