"I noticed a marked change in my interest and enthusiasm compared to previous assignments I had completed. For the first time, I found myself not memorizing rote facts and events, but rather extensively analyzing the tacit motives and consequences, the psychology behind each stroke of diplomacy, and the varying perspectives from different sides of interplay. For the first time, I looked at history with the question of why?, rather than what? or when?" - Ohio High School History Day student
