YMCA YOUTH IN GOVERNMENT
Honestly, the morning of the trip I tried to convince myself that I shouldn't go. Not because I didn't want to go, but because somewhere inside a little part of me was afraid of what would happen. I was afraid that I would freeze and that I wouldn't enjoy it. If I hadn't gone I would've regretted it because honestly if it wasn't the best, it was one of the best experiences I've ever had. It was a fun trip and it was also the moment when I realized that I have a love for government. Although I should've been uncomfortable as a first year (student) at State Assembly, it sort of felt natural and I wish I would've been able to participate for more than a year before graduation. I sort of lucked out I guess, but all the while I gained even more than I imagined to gain.
