I am a student who currently goes to high school. I will begin my senior year in high school this coming fall and there is this one particular thing I missed out on being able to participate in this past May, which is Girls State. Girls State happens during the summer in many states and the only students that are eligible to participate are the juniors who are becoming seniors. I wanted to participate in this event but a certain teacher that selects each girl that can participate told me that I was too late in wanting to be apart of the event. I would like for a certain law to be changed. I think that any girl who is a junior or a senior, even though they would have graduated, can be apart of this incredible event. Maybe, Girls State can be held during the fall or spring for seniors because they would have already graduated by the time Girls State begins. Many organizations are allowing both juniors and seniors to take part in certain events so others can have a second chance. Being apart of Girls State will be an amazing opportunity to be apart of and more girls need to be involved in this world-changing event. It will influence young women to learn that they have a voice in politics and they will have the ability to show the world what they represent. I think it is important for our future women to be apart of politics as it is the world we are beginning to form.
