Team Member Simone Gewirth Bio
Hi, my name is Simone and I am a freshman at University High school. This is my second year working with the oral history projects. Last year I conducted interviews on the Counterculture project and this year is my first as an intern working on the Military personnel project. Some of my hobbies are swimming, reading, and backpacking.
I think I was drawn to the oral history project because of all the unique things you learn, just from listening to someone tell their life story. Each person has had different experiences and has unique views and opinions to share. One thing I really enjoy about this project is that you can get insight onto a topic that you might never hear about first hand again in your lifetime! Having to think about the way in which all this information can be shared with the public and compiled into a documentary is great because it forces you to stretch your mind -- to ask questions, which is always something everyone should do more of!
