Jun. 7th, 2018 Day 5 of ALANMGS
ALA Girls Nation Press Conference was a success. The Finalist were very confident in their answers and it was a great experience to have all of the city reporters act like actual reporters! The most interesting piece of legislation I heard today was adding a 10¢ tax on groceries for every plastic bag that is used. It will get more people to buy reusable bags. The Senate court was on fire with the debating and the constant changing of bills that needed a few more details to be perfect. My overall favorite guest of the week was today’s guest as she helped with the oath of offices which was an interesting and fun path to take part of! My impressions of the banquet was it was very formal and seeing everyone dressed up in their best and recognize the real reason why we are strong women was beautiful. I recorded the candlelight song and the speech was beautiful.
