 What I learned at Youth in Government 2016.......

  • It got me out of my shell, and made me more confident
  • Speaking up isn't that hard, and that by doing things that involve a lot of people you make new friends easily
  • The process of writing a bill, testifying for or against bills and all that a bill goes through to get passed or killed,and that Youth in Government is the coolest program ever.
  • That this a the most powerful way for young people to make change.
  • To respect others views even if I disagree
  • It is possible for us to move forward with strong leadership for the future. Although I was depressed oWednesday I have been lifted up.
  • Our Government is a lot more complicated than I thought.
  • I have the confidence to speak up about what I believe in
  • I am really interested in politics
  • It is a friendly environment, I liked that there was no pressure to speak.
  • To stand up for change you want to see in your State or local gov't, no matter your age.
