Can’t Get Enough Smithsonian: NMAH Archives Center Fellow Aysha Preston

Posted on Aug 10, 2015 by in The OFI Blog |

National Museum of American History (NMAH) Archives Center Research Fellow Aysha Preston has history with the Smithsonian. As a kid, Aysha would spend entire summers exploring the many museums, losing herself in the fascinating exhibits that they held.

After interning last year at the Smithsonian, Aysha has taken the next step in her Smithsonian journey and completed a fellowship under the NMAH Archives Center. Her experience helped her realize her life passion as she continued to “engage audiences, educate the public, and host events in educational and public programming.”
