ESD’s own Anastasia Sotiropoulos ’19 will be representing Texas at the Conference on National Affairs (CONA) this summer!
This YMCA Youth conference selects 25 people to represent each state, based on a grueling application of essays, evaluation of past Youth & Government experience, and a personal video on what the student could bring to CONA. The student state representatives will gather for the week-long conference in North Carolina this July, where they will debate national and international issues affecting the government.
Anastasia, who has been a member of the Youth & Government team here at school since seventh grade, has been actively involved in the club and will be the Vice-President next school year.
“I’m excited to meet new people from different states and hear how their opinions on issues differ from my own,” said Anastasia. “I’m so grateful to be given the opportunity to attend!”
