History

Museum

I've always been fascinated by history. My father has a passion for archeology so I got into it at a young age. What I love about history is that it allows me to understand the world better - on a large and a small scale. Through history I can see why cultures and country became what they are now, I can discover how events and developments are intertwined, why society reacts in a certain way to certain things. The same is also true for my own little world. Knowing my family history helps me understand where my parents, where I come from.
I am thankful for my roots and for being rooted in something larger, for having my own place and history in this world.

So wonderful that your father has inspired you in this way - and that you recognize the importance of understanding our family history, too.
