To me, History is like an Epic, composed by the actions and decisions of humanity. A study of History reminds us of our fleeting existence in the grand scheme of things. With the time that we have, what stories will we write?
Michelle Chan Yun Yee
History is an unending dialogue between the past and the present, the historian and his facts. It is an unending quest for excellence.

History ain’t just facts; it’s about the stories and perspectives.
History is my life. Albeit cliche it is the truth. I believe that those who are wise learn from the mistakes of others while fools learn from their own. History has guided the way I live my life. Without understanding the past, how can one define what is a better future much less try to create it.

I chose history because I wanted to spend my 4 years in university doing something I like rather than something I think the job market would like. And now in my second year, I honestly have no regrets on this decision. I enjoy every day of my education as a History major and I hope to be able to spread this joy with students in NUS and students who intend to come to pursue their passion in History too.
Do what you love and never work a day in your life

History is an avenue for me to pursue my interest and delve deeper into a subject that I love. It’s also a subject I enjoy reading about and can learn lessons from. History is fun, interesting and a platform for me to grow.

I’m bananas for history
History is so intricate and tedious, but that’s what makes it beautiful.

What history means to me?
To me history is something I’m passionate about. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do since I was young and I’m really glad that I’ve been given the opportunity to study history sort of full time at NUS. It’s always been something that excites me and I think it would be difficult for me to imagine my life without history. Many of my friends are history majors too and there’s something really nice about being able to share what you’re passionate with other like-minded individuals :)
History allows us to see the world through the lens of those from the past and that ability to empathize is the greatest thing one can get from studying history.
