Anna Van Dine
Anna is an undergraduate student at NYU Gallatin where her studies incorporate journalistic work and ethnographic methodologies, a love of oral history, everyday artifacts, and the conviction that everything is interesting when you look at it right. Anna believes strongly in the power of listening and values ordinary histories; when she was small, she told her mom that when she grew up she wanted to travel around and record old people (now she knows that's a real job!). What drives her is preserving — and making people interested in — things that might be otherwise lost or unknown. She hopes to do this in some capacity after she graduates.
