"The Beaverbrook Vimy Program changed my outlook on the way we perceive and discuss historical events. I had incredible discussions with my peers and learned to question and think about why it is that we emphasize certain historical events over others. Most of all I had so much fun connecting with people with similar interest as myself and having the opportunity to get physically immersed in places with a rich history."
