From the Smithsonian Museums

Annabel Yu

Annabel Yu was an intern through the Smithsonian’s Benjamin Lawless Program and upon its conclusion, became an Events Coordinator Intern for the Office of Academic Appointments and Internships (OAAI). As the Events Coordinator Intern, she has focused on coordinating virtual events to allow interns to network with each other and to experience the full Smithsonian internship experience. In addition, she has worked on designing online resources such as marketing materials. She is currently a high school senior at Carroll Senior High School in Southlake, Texas. During college, she hopes to study business and international relations.
