My Internship at SoHDA gave me the opportunity to participate in a very important way in society.  SoHDA provided a platform to exercise my leadership skills, oratory skills and most important, my people skills.  The roles that I undertook while interning at SoHDA have been useful during my current travels and certainly prepared me for a much bigger stage-a worldwide stage.  I will be finishing a TEFL certification course in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on June 2nd 2017.

I will return to Los Angeles on June 29, 2017 for a final farewell because, for the next few years, I will be teaching English in China!

Teresa Chung – Chinese Historical Society of Southern California

Works in an accounting firm and is saving for grad school

“I interned with HistoryCorps during my third year at the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California (CHSSC).  I worked in with members within the Chinatown community, and had the privilege to meet and interact daily with dozens of people who are passionately involved in preserving Chinese American history- I helped interview Los Angeles residents, recorded, and preserved their personal stories about living in Chinatown during the mid-1900s.”

“Outside of the actual site, HistoryCorps provided a great intimate support system- they kept in constant contact, provided resources, and one-on-one attention, which is often hard to find on a campus as large as ours.  The TAs and the staff members encouraged us to think critically about history- how it is preserved, what gets chosen to be recorded, and how this affects current communities and legacies.  In addition to this, they offer numerous sites, many of which are deeply intertwined within their communities and cover histories not commonly studied in regular history classes.  This internship offered a truly unique environment for students to gain both experience and critical insight and I would highly recommend this program for any student passionate about history and our LA community.”
