I volunteered for the Summer Club at the ROM in 2008. I had previously travelled there on numerous school field trips, and the Museum has always held a special place in my heart. Sheltering countless artifacts of our past, the ROM truly offers something for everyone. As it approaches this landmark anniversary, we must remember to pause and reflect on those before us, who contributed to this museum's collection. From the archaeologists, to the curators and administrators who worked behind the scenes, this undertaking has been a success for our city. I am deeply grateful for being able to play a small part at the ROM, and encourage students of all ages to cherish this institution, not as a warehouse of old things, bust as a window of our journey as a species.
