By Dean’s Intern Maddi Pariser at the Newseum
It’s a beautiful day to spend some time out on the Newseum’s terrace overlooking Pennsylvania Avenue.
Exercise, defend and promote freedom. Uphold free expression by championing the five freedoms of the First Amendment: religion, speech, press, assembly and petition.
It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it.
During my final semester at AU, I have had the privilege of working as the exhibit development intern at the Newseum. I am guided by a highly-motivated team of writers, editors and researchers who are responsible for creating the scripts and written content that make up almost all of the museum’s exhibits.
As you might expect, dedication to the core mission, partnered with a collaborative work environment, is constantly inspiring free-flowing conversation. Employees explore the challenges confronting modern day freedom by engaging in dialogue.
Throughout my internship, I have regularly participated in meetings covering subjects such as religious freedom, the civil rights movement, and journalism ethics.
