By actively participating in the campaigning process, speeches, voting procedure, House of Representatives, I was able to experience firsthand the basics of how a state government functions. At Girls State, I was elected a member of the city council House of Representatives, and city budget director. I was also able to hear very inspiring presentations from Governor Janet Napolitano and her director of intergovernmental affairs, Anna Maria Chavez.
Thank you again for this wonderful learning and growing experience. Without the American Legion Auxiliary this opportunity would not have been possible.
