Who knew taking a Public History course in my fourth year of undergraduate studies would change the trajectory of my career? As a marketing major, I was on a very linear business career pathway, but I always had a passion for history. I had previous experience working with archival material, in the heritage sector and libraries, and took an Islamic Civilization history course as an elective. Somewhere along the way, the stars aligned and here I am completing a Public History course placement at the York University Libraries (YUL) Clara Thomas Archives and Special Collections (CTASC) as a digital records assistant working on the Mariposa Folk Foundation fonds. This placement provided me with insights into the importance of diversity in the archival profession and an appreciation for the labour involved in archival description.
