To date, the International History Olympiad has been the most fulfilling learning and networking experience in my entire life. As a first-ever participant from Uzbekistan, I enjoyed every single minute of the Olympiad, thanks to the impeccable organization and like-minded peers who exhibited the best example of sportsmanship by supporting and cheering each other, even though we were on different teams. I participated in various contests, but the buzzer events were special. Although I did not earn a medal in the buzzer events, it was a great feeling to simply hold the buzzer and experience that exhilarating atmosphere of competition. The most emotional moment of the Olympiad for me were the Medals Ceremonies. They hold a special spot in my memory as my heart nearly jumped out of my chest before the mindblowing announcements when I was announced as the winner of two of the exams. In Uzbekistan, I would not have had an opportunity to test my knowledge of history because STEM events and contests are given more prominence than history and other humanities and social sciences events. Together with my younger brothers, representing the younger generation of history nerds in my family, we are looking forward to the next Olympiad in 2025.
