"I am having difficulty even finding the right words to convey just how grateful and impressed my husband and I are at the level of passion, commitment, and excellence put forth by all. I saw my daughter grow in confidence, research skills, preparation, public-speaking, use of technology, and managing competitive stress. I saw coaches selflessly dedicate so much time and effort to see that each kid was prepared to perform to the best of their abilities"

“It was the best decision I’ve ever made. NHI changed me in different ways and made me grow as a person. At the beginning I was too shy I would sway back-and-forth out of nervousness; that was two months ago now I speak with confidence and passion, it was hard at first but I understood the concept and it became easy. Even though I didn’t make it to finals it was the best experience without a doubt. I’m excited to continue my journey with NHI.”

"To me NHI was an amazing experience. I had a lot of fun whether it was just practicing with my friends or staying up late fixing my line of questioning. I learned a lot of important skills through NHI, especially leadership and how to speak in public. It was a really great experience and I would definitely recommend it.”
