Press Reps Susan and Aliyah Visit the State House of Representatives

Susan-new.jpgMy morning at the State House of Representatives was fun and busy. From the second my mom and I walked through the doors, we were whisked from room to room. In the first room, Press Rep Aliyah and I were greeted by he Speaker of the House, Mike Hubbard. While there, we posed for pictures and afterward he gave us a Speaker of the House coin. I thought that was really neat.

Next, Aliyah and I were led into another room where we posed for pictures with Representative Victor Gaston, Speaker Pro Tempore. We also posed for pictures with Trish Coghlan, CEO of Girl Scouts of North Central Alabama, and Marian Loftin, Girl Scout board member. I wasn't bothered by the picture-taking at all. My mom takes her camera everywhere we go. I've gotten used to it by now.

After all of the pictures were taken, our parents went upstairs to the gallery and Aliyah and I were led onto the floor of the House of Representatives. We waited for a little while and then we were introduced and we led the House of Representatives in The Pledge of Allegiance.

When we exited the floor we were given a Certificate of Appreciation from The State of Alabama House of Representatives. We went upstairs afterward to where a table had been set up with cookies and Girl Scout information. We talked with a few representatives and were interviewed later by a WSFA reporter. The bright light on top of the camera was nerve-racking.

Overall, my visit at The Alabama House of Representatives was busy and fun. Aliyah and I did many different things and met a lot of new people.
