Review for Junior Statesmen Foundation, San Mateo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This past summer, I went to JSA Summer School at Georgetown. I chose the program because it looked interesting, and I thought that I might get to explore my interest in politics a little bit more. Needless to say, when I arrived, I was floored. Never before had I seen a group of students as well-informed and passionate about politics. Debates about hot button issues broke out during meal times, but no matter how much we disagreed, we all were grateful to one another for being able to share our views in a civilized manner. After the three week program ended, my interest in politics had not only increased ten-fold, but I had made dozens of new friends (on both ends of the political spectrum, I might add). My experience was so wonderful that I've decided to start my own JSA chapter at my high school so that I can share this experience with my fellow students.
