Class of 2017

Heather Torres is a rising senior at Cornell University where she is finishing her B.A. in History with minors in Anthropology and Science & Technology Studies. Growing up in New Jersey, Heather, a first-generation Peruvian American, was inspired by the many major historical sites on the east coast to develop a passion for museums and public education. While working at Gateway National Recreational Area, she looks forward to researching the cross section of the site and minority communities. She loves getting the chance to explore the history of new cities and places. She hopes her work will help inspire others to explore the history around them as well.
