What Girls State Means to Me

By Emily Hunt, Hudson City

From trekking to the dorms on Sunday

to the gubernatorial debate

My week has been full and fast

at Volunteer Girls State

We stay up late

To Wake up early

and to us it makes perfect sense.

With a love of country

And love of state

We learn

And we debate

Working hard,

We worked together

To be the best we can.

We are the voices of tomorrow,

But we have began enacting change today.

Standing strong

because we stand together

If we fall

We try again

We are cities.

We are sisters.

We are leaders.

We are exceptional.

We are confident in who we are

And who we will become.

In this week a home was found

Thanks to the ALA at Volunteer Girls State.
