This year, the college interns for Voices of September 11th will tell their own stories – in addition to the stories they are helping to preserve in the 9/11 Living Memorial Project. In their blog posts, the interns will share their experience interning at VOICES. Our hope is that this will give our readers a different perspective on the work we do at VOICES as well as provide our interns with valuable “real world” experience. We invite you to join the discussion!
