Summary: Rebecca graduated in 2009 and works for the Wordsworth Trust in Grasmere. Read her story here.
I graduated in 2009 with a BA in Classical Civilisation and continued at the University to complete an MA in Art Gallery and Museum Studies.
I am now an intern at the Wordsworth Trust in Grasmere, in the Lake District, where I have the privilege of working with items and manuscripts belonging to William Wordsworth and other contemporary Romantic poets and writers. Completing a degree in Classical Civilisation confirmed my passion for history, and it is this passion that has led me to museum work.
I am now helping to develop and deliver education programmes, and I hope that one day I can inspire others the way staff in Classics inspired me during my time at Leeds.
