Kirsten Hankins had grown up watching history films and documentaries with her dad. In school her teachers would set fun projects like putting Martin Luther on trial, or recreating French salons where students had to act the part of various philosophes. By the time she entered university, she was set on studying history. Kirsten recently graduated from Royal Holloway University of London with a Masters degree in Public History and previously from Salisbury University with a Bachelors in History with minors in Anthropology, English, and Art. Aside from interning with WETA, Kirsten is currently working as a docent at the Port Tobacco Historic Site in Southern Maryland. Regardless of where she is, Kirsten is hoping to bring enthusiasm and interest to the discussion of historical topics!
