In 2007, I had the opportunity to attend the University of Cambridge as a visiting student through the Pembroke-Kings Programme. While there I did additional undergraduate coursework in history from Cambridge professors.
This experience also afforded me with the chance to travel to various historical sites in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in Europe. Visiting such sites provided me with historical insights I had never had before about those locations. As a result, I came to realize the power of experiential learning, as opposed to more abstract methods of learning, and have advocated for it ever since.
