PBI Role Professional Experience Personal Statement

Preparing the insects for study is demanding and absorbing.

Daisy earned a B.A. in East Asian studies (spending a year in Beijing honing her Mandarin skills) before becoming professionally interested in jewelry design. Her experience with fine detail and small objects lends itself easily to the PBI project.

Working in the museum is thrilling and gives me a sense of being behind the scenes and privy to a special view of what always seemed mysterious as an outsider.
