Hi everyone!

My name is Abi. I grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina and moved to Nelson, New Zealand when I was twelve. After finishing high school, I decided to come back to North Carolina for university.

I’m a history major, interested in colonialism and medical history, especially the history of infectious diseases. I like learning about how catastrophe impacts the social world. I am also curious about the history of the pre-Columbian Americas, which often strays more into archaeology than traditional history. In general, though, if it happened more than thirty years ago I want to know about it.

This class drew my attention because it was about the history of division. As stated above, I enjoy studying how change affects people. On top of this, I would like to know more about building websites. It is important for academic research to be accessible to the general public in order to foster inclusion instead of division. I also believe that technological literacy is an important skill for historians to have.

I look forward to getting to know all of you.
