Swinburne University student Caitlin Matticoli

What do you hope to get out of the Celebrating Living History internship program this year?

I hope to gain a better understanding and appreciation of the elderly by hearing their wonderful stories. I feel that I can learn a lot from them and I will gain a lot of satisfaction knowing that I’ve shared someone’s story, a story that may have been completely forgotten after they passed away.

CaitlinI believe everyone deserves to have their story told and that this program is a wonderful one. It gives back meaning to the people who may no longer be able to find it themselves.
