A man’s homeland is wherever he prospers.
My name is Emily Johnson and I am a graduate student in Simmons University’s Archives and Records Management program. With this degree, I aspire to become an archivist who can create meaningful connections between archives and rural communities. While my university is in Boston, I am currently based in the Central Virginia region, where I work as an Historic Interpreter at Patrick Henry’s Scotchtown. In my free time, I volunteer for the NYPL Community Oral Histories project, helping to transcribe oral histories to make history more accessible to all.
