I am a first year law student at Georgetown University. Last Spring, I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, summa cum laude, with a degree in history. In high school, I was a 6-time Academic Games Leagues of American (AGLOA) national champion in the "Presidents" and "World Events" competitions. History and government are topics sometimes considered boring, unimportant, or even both. This assessment arises from a misunderstanding of the subjects rather than from the subjects themselves. With proper engagement with and understanding of history and government, students will see that these subjects play a starring role in our daily lives. History, under which government is often studied, is simply the story of us. It is not a stagnant story but an evolving one. It lives with us; we have no choice but to wrestle with it, appreciate it, and engage with it vigorously. History and government should then be subjects considered not boring or unimportant, but rather enthralling and essential. I look forward to helping students realize exactly that.
