Andrew is a junior who is currently working towards a bachelor of arts in history with a minor in anthropology. He graduated from Oakwood School in his hometown of Morgan Hill, California. Originally concentrating on U.S. history, his professors exposed him to Latin American history with which he fell in love. Still interested in both, Andrew hopes to be able to work in the nation's capital dealing with some aspect of public history or museum work. He plans on getting a master’s degree after graduation and hopes that he can aid in the effort of research, preservation, educating the public, and more.
