Walking and Talking

Today started of a bit rocky as we were meant to meet up with all of the other interns at the Smithsonian Museum of American History, but we were lost trying to find out where we were supposed to enter through. The best part is that after wandering around an entire museum we realized that we were across the street from where we needed to be! We arrived on time regardless of the confusion and it ended up being just another funny situation in D.C.! We got a private tour of the new Latine History exhibit at the museum, and it was one of my favorite places in the entire building. It covered the history of Latine people from all different cultures both in their native lands, as well as in the United States. The pieces that they had on display were also very thought-provoking and even made me get emotional at times! I love the stories that they were able to tell with this exhibit and how they were able to present the various people at the same time without overshadowing one another. After this, we went to the second day of orientation for CHCI where we learned about financial literacy and how to improve our networking capabilities. Both of the seminars that we had of these subjects were extremely well done and informative, and while they did seem like intimidating topics at first, by the end I felt like I was more prepared in both topics. The end of this day capped off with a networking event where different people from CHCI came and we went around and spoke to them to put what we had just learned into practice. At first it did seem a bit nerve racking, but after talking to a few people it was much more easy to go up to someone and strike up a conversation!
