I applied to be a Discovery Girl because I thought I had lots of wisdom to share with other girls! One day when I was reading my magazine, I turned it over and bam! There it was...the invitation to apply! I was pretty confident I'd be chosen...but nervous too. 

It took me less than a week to fill out the questionnaire. And while I didn't particularly like it, it did make me examine myself, which is something I hadn't done in a long time! I was nervous but confident. When my friends and family found out I had made it in, they were happy and excited for me! 

I was reading the magazine when I saw the ad for the Summit and thought, "How cool would that be?!" Plus it's part of my favorite magazine. After writing my questionnaire, I felt confident! I learned a lot about myself when I was writing my answers. I spent a lot of time on it but as time went on I thought it might be unlikely for me to actually get in because of how many applications there were.

One day I was on the DG website and saw a Summit ad and decided to ask my mom if I could apply. She said yes...but she also told me I had to be prepared if I didn’t get picked. I honestly thought I didn’t have a chance. I mean it was my first year applying!

Whatever the prank keep it safe and fun for everyone. The trickster usually ends it by yelling "April Fool!" also known as All Fools' Day- although not a federal holiday, it is a holiday observed on April 1, each year since 1562.  It is a day which celebrates the custom of playing practical jokes on friends, or sending them on fools' errands. Sometimes, elaborate practical jokes played on friends or relatives might last the entire day and even the news media and major companies sometimes get involved.

Celebrate the unconditional love that puppies/and all dogs bring to people's lives.

Throughout the world there are approximately 500-600 million dogs, including strays.

That is a lot of love!
