    Rebecca Younker: "My summer in Dublin has been an entirely life-altering experience. When I departed from Kansas City in May, I was certain that this internship would help me figure out what I want to do with my life in relation to my career. I needed to decide where my best placement in graduate school would be based on my experiences in Ireland. I knew that I wanted to work in a museum, but I did not know where I wanted to make that contribution."
