Today was a very long but really great day. Tomorrow we all go home from the conference, and I’ve made so many great friends that I’ll miss!

Today was our day on Capitol Hill. My friend and I had an appointment with  Senator Gillibrand. We made sure to arrive early to the appointment, and with good sense because it took a long time to even figure out how to get in the building! We tried to go in the senators and staff only entrance by mistake, but don’t worry, we were caught immediately. =) The meeting itself was only ten minutes long, but we had time to ask a few questions with the senator. We discussed education, the gay marriage bill, and her campaign for reelection. It was very official and scary- there were two assistants in the room and they had to tape record our meeting.. it was weird and political-y. I felt very honored to be allowed an appointment with one of our senators. I felt that even though the meeting was monitored, it was wonderful that she took the time out of her schedule to meet with two highschoolers!
