Are you as fascinated as I am by the fact that approximately 2,400 years ago, the ancient Egyptians had manuscripts now known as Books of the Dead? Ever since I was old enough to read, ancient Egypt has captivated me. From the pyramids and the Great Sphinx of Giza, to the hieroglyphs and sarcophagi of the pharaohs, there are so many ancient Egyptian secrets and mysteries! Is it possible that aliens actually helped build the legendary pyramids? What do the drawings on the walls of their tombs represent? What is a Book of the Dead?

It was March, nearing the end of my senior year at the University of Southern California, and graduation and the real world were right around the corner. I needed a position working somewhere I could be proud of as a college graduate. I had applied for the Met's MuSe (Museum Seminar) Internship as a junior and was turned down, but I decided to reapply as a senior, having gained more experience in the interim. This time I was confident that I was the ideal MuSe Intern, and I was accepted in April, a month before graduation.

Most people are attracted to the Met for the art, but what happens behind the scenes captivates me far more. Not many people are given the opportunity to see the way the Museum works behind closed doors, but I was lucky enough to get that chance, and I now have a deeper love for the Museum and all of the work that goes into making it one of the best.

From New Yorkers to tourists, thousands of people visit The Metropolitan Museum of Art every day. I have admired these people from afar for a while and believe they are a part of the art. With people drawing, viewing, and talking about the artworks, there is so much diversity in one place. I sometimes find myself overwhelmed by the chaos of my studies, family, friends, and everything else I have going on, but I never thought that there might be other people who feel the same way and also find a safe haven within the Met.

I have been interested in everything and anything that has even the slightest relation to ancient Egyptian culture since the seventh grade. My keen interest in the ancient Egyptians ranges from their polytheistic beliefs, to their political system, to their long line of pharaohs.
