I have been having such a wonderful time here at Girls Nation! So far, my favorite event has been visiting Arlington National Cemetery. It was peaceful, serene, and inspiring—reminding each American of the sacrifices and strength seen in American history. I was honored to have the privilege of participating in the “Telling of Religions Service.” It felt so great to speak on behalf of my religion. I truly felt empowered and at peace with myself. Speaking at the amphitheatre with the architecture, environment, and the lovely group of ladies that respectfully listened to each word I said made me feel incredibly comfortable and full of bliss. I will never forget this opportunity I received. I hope I, in some way, have helped the girls learn something new. Perhaps I cleared up some misconceptions. That would be a dream come true.
