We need your help! We need your answers to our upcoming Great Debate question!

When I saw the application, I just knew that I had to apply for the DG Leadership Summit. I’ve always dreamed of being in a magazine, and a summit with 36 girls from around the country and Canada sounded like so much fun!

I honestly didn’t think I would make it in, though. I’d heard from previous years that thousands of girls submitted an application. I thought, what are the chances of me getting in? One in thousands?

I decided to apply to be a Discovery Girl because I love the magazine, and I thought it would be an awesome opportunity to learn something, contribute to the magazine, and be a positive role model. I thought my chances of being picked were small because I knew that thousands of girls would probably apply, but I went for it anyway!

I really wanted to be in the magazine, so when I saw the page about applying, I thought, “Why not give it a try?” I didn’t think I would be chosen, though.

I spent from the time I first saw the questions all the way to the deadline on the questionnaire—about three months! I like answering questions so it was fun, and the questions were great. They were really detailed (in a good way).
