Sarah Concepcion is the Co-Department Head of the writing department at the DME Internship. Sarah got her bachelor’s degree in English at George Mason University in Virginia and is currently working on getting her master’s degree in History. Sarah finds the changes from the pandemic not detrimental to having a community with other interns and the virtual office hours that she and her other CO-DH have at the end of each month help open up discussion or questions writing interns might have. Sarah was also active member in the Folger’s Shakespeare Library which is one of the largest collections of Shakespeare’s work in the world. Sarah said she wanted to join the writing department because it is “simple outlining of a person’s life, explaining what they do and how their service was important. It also gives the public an idea of the types of variations there are in military service.” Her responsibilities as a Department Head include reviewing the metrics of intern’s writing projects and deciding what would best help new interns.
