My name is Nohemi Colin and I am from Chicago, IL. I am a first-generation college graduate from SIUe where I earned a B.A. in international studies, focused on sustainability and development, with a minor in environmental studies. In the spring of 2019, I studied abroad with Semester at Sea and gained a global comparative experience sailing to several countries around the world. While studying abroad, I became interested in visiting and learning more about UNESCO World Heritage Sites. I continue to travel and visit many American history sites and national parks which is what ultimately drew me the Longfellow House-Washington’s Headquarters National Historic Site. I am excited to help put the pieces together and help visitors understand the evolution of the neighborhood by mapping changes to the historic property using GIS Story Maps.
