Robert Rezvin- Public Affairs Intern- Statue of Liberty NM
As the public affairs intern at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, I've had a very busy summer. We've had 2 exhibit openings on Ellis Island, and there is always media interest in the events at the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. I've had a chance to write 3 articles for the Statue of Liberty's intranet site and also was able to attend the unveiling of the "Infinity", a 210 yacht which is owned by Hornblower. (Hornblower is the parent company of Statue Cruises, the boat concession for the Statue of Liberty NM). I've also assisted in two interviews- one of Peter Wong, park ranger at Ellis Island by NY1, the other of David Lucshinger, the superintendent of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, by NJ News 12. Last, but not least, I updated the Media Contact list for the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, which consists of over 300 media outlets and freelance reporters.

Emily Nadal- Ellis Island Education Division
This summer I've been interning with the Education team at Ellis Island. I've been doing so many things, but two in particular hold most of my attention. One if the new interactive exhibit where visitors can see and touch tangible objects that tell a story. The other thing I've been involved in is the Ellis Kids exhibit designed for kids up to 12 years old.
