I feel that it would be safe to say that the We the People program has changed my life in a way that I think could only be matched by the Boy Scouting movement. And coming from an Eagle Scout who spends his summers working at a scout camp that means a lot. I have always thought that I enjoyed discussing politics and government… and for someone who plans on being a history professor that is important. But this program has solidified an urge to be civically active.

Aside from being the perfect ending to my academic career, it was the most gratifying personal experience I’ve ever had. The program allowed me to discover myself, how I fit into today’s problems. More importantly, it gave me the ability to validate my beliefs, a method in which I could respectfully and properly support my opinions.

Having the chance to not only tour our capitol and meet Senator Lugar, but being able to share and discuss with distinguished judges, professors, and various legal workers our passion is an opportunity few ever receive, and one I will never forget. Even more, there is nothing more gratifying than sitting in the United States Capitol Building, in a House of Representatives Committee Room, as a top ten finalist and taking a moment to realize how successful and lucky we truly are. We the People was the most gratifying high school experience and one that should be encouraged to all citizens.
