1. Who are you?

My name is Rhyan Opel. I am from Amherst, Ohio where I live with my mom, dad, and 15 year old brother, Reid. I am currently a college sophomore at Ashland University studying History and Political Science. I chose these majors because I love learning about history, discussing political philosophy, and writing. I enjoy working as a campus tour guide at school and as a writing assistant.

2. What are some things you enjoy doing in your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy singing, hiking and exploring, and spending time with friends and family.

3. How long have you worked at the Birthplace? Do you enjoy it? What have you learned?

I started working at the Birthplace in May, and I have learned so much since working there, been able to work with such nice coworkers, and been able to give tours to so many kind visitors! My favorite thing to learn about in regards to Thomas Edison is the different impacts on him that created the incredible thinker and innovator that he became.

4. What is your favorite invention that Thomas Edison created? 

My favorite invention of his is the talking doll as well because I think it shows that he is human.
