Hello! My name is Helena Cieutat and I am one of your 2021 Louisiana Girls State Parish Communications Officers. I have interviewed several of our citizens on our second day of Louisiana Girls State on June 22, 2021.
1. What do you think is something positive about having virtual LAGS this year? Monae Gordon: It allows us to utilize and experiment with new technological problems such as the Whova platform! Allee Gay: I think it may help us. We have been and are becoming a really digital society to learn how to conduct businesses and interact with people virtually. Callie Tregre: Moving the final project from a poster format to an online website format is more fit for the current times as we become more technology based. This method can actually be applied to real life communities and give us experience creating informative websites.
2. As our counselors mentioned, this organization can create life-long friendships. Judging by who you have met so far, do you think you will make any? Monae Gordan: So far I think so! I have loved everyone I’ve met so far, everyone has such unique passions and is extremely intelligent! Allee Gay: Definitely! I love being able to meet and work with such strong, intelligent young women and I can’t wait to get to know y’all more. Callie Tregre: I think some of the people I have met can become lifelong friends. I’ve chatted with multiple people so far that share common interests with me. I’ve also followed and been followed by multiple other girls in this program on social media platforms such as Instagram. I believe this will allow us to stay in touch way beyond our participation in Girls State.
