Be a DG Star: Gloria's Tips!

Hi, girls! It’s Gloria again! I hope you’ve had a chance to check out the February/March issue! I had such a blast working on it with the DG staff! One of my jobs as a DG intern is to read all of your questionnaires, and I’ve read hundreds. I even helped choose the Nevada Discovery Girls! What do we look for in the DG questionnaires, and how can you make yours stand out? Read on, because I have tips! Tip #1

Tip #1: Be Creative!

Why? Because it will set your questionnaire apart! Questionnaires that are presented in a cute, unique way stand out! One Discovery Girl made a scrapbook as her questionnaire, and pasted her answers on each page. Another drew illustrations to help explain her answers. One girl even used Photoshop to make her own Discovery Girls cover! If you put a lot of effort into your questionnaire and make it look different, we will definitely notice! Tip #2

Tip #2: We Want Details, Details, Details!

Read the questions carefully, and then explain--with details--what you mean when you answer. Providing examples definitely help. For instance, if you write that your grandmother inspired you, let us know why. What did she do in her life, and what special times did you spend--or have you spent--together? Your dream is to become a pediatrician someday? Why did you choose that profession? You play five sports? What have you learned about yourself and your teammates by playing each sport, and are there ever days when you feel discouraged (or inspired)? Putting thought into your responses helps us to get to know the real you. So don’t be shy about writing down all of your thoughts and dreams! It will only help! Tip #3

Tip #3: Include a Photo and a Parent’s Signature!

Remember to send a recent photo of yourself and have your questionnaire signed by a parent! We’ve had so many girls send in great questionnaires that didn’t come with a photo or a parent’s signature. Without both your picture and your parent’s signature, we can’t consider you to be a Discovery Girl, no matter how well you’ve answered the questions! So don’t forget to include the photo and the signature!

Some Bonus Tips…

Tell us about your embarrassing moments and Worst Day stories! Not only do these stories give you another chance to be in the magazine, they also give us more opportunities to get to know the amazing person that you are! The more you have to say, the better!

And Remember…

We read every questionnaire that we receive, so keep them coming girls! Start writing one by downloading it here. I know all of you girls will send in amazing questionnaires after reading my tips, so get started! Next stop is Tennessee! Do you want to know anything else about becoming a Discovery Girl? Ask questions as comments to this post! I can’t wait to start reading all of your great questionnaires! Gloria

Omg it is so fun to be a DG cover girl! Whoever gets picked will have a lot of fun on the set! Good Luck NY girls! ~Hannah~*

I filled out the questionnaire but I don't think I have much luck! :( Because you have ALREADY visited WA and I wasn't really into DG then! :(:( So I don't really have any chance.

I'm so scared! I sent in my questionare today, but I don't think I'll get picked. :( I don't think my answers were good enough! Gloria, I have a question for you. Please answer it ASAP so I can stop worrying!!! If you don't believe the same thing that a person writes will you still pick them if their answers are really well answered? I am dying to know, because I put a lot of my beliefs into the questions! I really want to get picked, so I hope I still have a chance! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE RESPOND BACK!! I DON'T WANT TO GO MONTHS WONDERING!! THANKS SO MUCH!! -Emily

if you are 12 can you be a dg star? cause there are lots of girls in the mag are 12 HHHEEELLLPPP!!!!!!!!!

Hey, I have a subscription, and I have seen one 14 year old and a few 13 year olds. So I am still pondering whether or not the limit is 12...

Yeah you are right I hope they come to Michigan it would be so so cool to be a discovery girl and be in a magazine!!!!!!!

It's totally my dream, too. It would be one of the coolest things that ever happened to me if I was a discovery girl! I absolutely love the magazine. It's great that they're coming to NY! Thanks so muh, DG!

Does anyone know when they'll be visiting PA? I live here, and I REALLY wanna be a Discorvery Girl! I'm 11, so I only have lke, a year and a half until I'm 13 and too old!

Are you visiting Pittsburgh Pa? i hope you do!

Omigosh!! I love Da Burgh!!! : ) But anyway, GO STEELERS!!! Oh, and Pitt just ROCKS this year!! I hope they win the NCAA Championships!!!

Pittsburgh is pretty cool.... BUT PHILLY'S JUST AS GOOD!!! GO EAGLES!!!!!!!! GO PHILLIES!!!!!!!!

when r u gonna visit PA? i cant wait till u guys do cuz i luv ur magazine & it would be so cool to be a discovery girl!

Even though Nd has only about 600,000 people in the whole state, we're girls like everyone else, and more important, we want to be a discovery girl! Why do more populated and more famous states get to be on it? Has ND ever been on it????!!!!

Yes, Visit north Dakota is right! I wish I could be a Discovery Girl, but now I'm going to be too old but I wish some other North Dakotan girls could get the chance to be a Discovery Girl! It would be nice if ND could get to be on it.

I totally agree! None of the small states ever get a chance. Stop picking popular places!

when are they going to come to IL????!!!! I love dg and reallly want to be one!

I know exactly how you guys feel! DG is going to Tenessee, and my state is so close! I live in Alabama!!! I want to be a DG SO BAD!!! YOu do the math: DG + Alabama = :( It's no fair!!!!!!!!!!! ~Arianna~*

I live in Canada Alberta and not one magazine that I have seen have Canadians in it. At least a magazine came to a state close to yours!! -Alberta Girl

I can't wait until you come to Pennsylvania!! I finished the Q's and i cant wait to send them.!! -Lindz

When are they coming to New York? How do you fill out the questionnare and where do u get it? I would love to be picked!!! -Victoria <3

Emy How did u know if you got picked or not? I want to become one too but if they don`t respond to me It will jut be a waste of my time. Get back to me soon. Han

I can't believe you guys are coming to New York! I've been working sooo hard to get perfect pics and to fill my questionnaire COMPLETELY. Good luck to all the New York discovery girls and I hope I get to see some of you there at the photo shoot and "meeting". XOXO! Love Always From Your New York Discovery Girl, Lexi

Yea I am from NY so i am sooo exited!!! I know everyone cant be picked but REALLY HOPE I DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Allyyyy<33

DG is sooo much fun! All the people there a great and the girls were amazing! When filling out my questionair I really tried to be myself, not someone I thought DG would like, because they like everything about you.......good, and bad. DG was such a great experience and they rock!

Hi, I am filling out theTennessee questionairre and I just wanted to say that peple make fun of our "southern" accent and it is no fair and it makes us feel bad. If you are reading this, just take note that nobody that I know has an accent and it is rude to make fun of us. if you are somebody that does this...................please, STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
