Reporting from the 2019 JYG State Conference

We are so excited Roslyn Ramon, our 2019 YG Social Media Editor, is able to attend our Middle School Conference! She has prepared a blog post for you regarding our JYG Middle School Conference.

“You look at everyone now and you think, ‘these middle school delegates are the future leaders’. You see how much stress, thought, and time everyone has put into their section. You wonder, ‘is it worth it?’ The truth is yes. Yes it’s worth it. These delegates don’t have to do what they are doing, but these young and future leaders understand that if you work hard now, life will only be a walk in the park. They and everyone around them want the future to not only be exceptional, but to be amazing. This all goes to show at the 2019 JYG State Conference in Austin, Texas.”

Meet Your New YG Intern

 

Meet Britney Butler, your new Youth and Government intern. Britney is a Senior at Texas State University majoring in Public Relations Mass Communications, and minoring in Business Administrations. Britney joined the YG team this February to gain real world experience in the field she will pursue after graduation in May.

What drew you to Texas Youth and Government?

During high school I worked as a lifeguard at the YMCA in Bastrop Texas. Having such a great experience I decided to apply when I learned about the Youth and Government position. I love working with children, and would love to be a part of educating them into the next leaders of the world.  I believe teaching young children about government is very important for todays society, and for the future society. I’m extremely excited to have the opportunity to work with the YG, I believe this is the perfect opportunity to help me get on my feet after graduation.

When you’re not busy with school and Texas YG, what do you do in your free time?

I have been a part of the Texas State PRSSA student organization on campus for the past two years, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, and last I love traveling and going to concerts.

Share 3 fun facts about you.

In my free time I like to work with adobe software, more specifically adobe premiere and after effects. I love working and learning about videography. I’m a big fan of watching YouTube, my favorite vlogers are Shane Dawson and Safiya Nygaard. After I graduate I hope I have the opportunity to travel more, and my ultimate goal is to travel Europe.

Thank you for sharing, Britney! We’re very excited to have you on the Texas YG team.
