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).

You may not be able to vote in the U.S. presidential election (yet!), but you can vote right here! Who do you think should be the next president of the United States?

I absolutely loved reading Discovery Girls, especially the true and relatable life stories brave girls shared, so when I saw something about a Discovery Girls Summit, I thought, “Wow, I have to be a part of this!” I knew it would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I usually don’t participate in magazine competitions or things like that, but some instinct told me that this was worth the time needed for the application.

I really liked Discovery Girls and I wondered about how the magazine finds all these girls that are in it, so I asked my mom to help me find out. We came across the information on the website, and I felt like the Summit would be a really unique situation and it sounded really fun, so I wanted to apply. I was worried that maybe I wasn’t good enough, but decided to try anyway.

I decided to apply to be a Discovery Girl because I enjoy reading the magazines. The topics of discussion are interesting, and the girls seemed so relatable. In one of the issues I read, it mentioned that there was going to be a Discovery Girls’ Leadership Summit. I knew my chances were slim, but I started answering the questionnaire anyway. 

When I saw the page in DG about the Summit, I decided to apply. I knew my chances of getting in were slim, but I realized I’d never know unless I tried. I really liked the answering the questions because they made me look deeper than just  the outside and I actually found out more about myself.
