Having fun in Washington, DC

Read more about Panim el Panim through the eyes of a teen participant, Kym Baker, Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway.
Yesterday at Union Station, my school HAFTR was waiting for a train back from Capital Visitor Center.
We met Meagan Maitin from Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2 and also from the upcoming movie Mean Girls 2. She took pictures with us, and we had at least a 25-30 minute conversation with her. We were so surprised that she took the time to talk with us. She was so nice! We told her that we are on this program called Panim el Panim and explained what we were doing. She said that Panim el Panim sounded really cool and that she wished she could do it too or could have done it when she was in high school. Also, my friend's birthday was yesterday. She didn't want a party, but another friend of hers and I went to Ilana to ask if we could get a cake. Ilana and the Panim staff got us a cake, and at dinner, everybody sang happy birthday to her! She was kind of embarrassed, but you can't miss somebody's sweet 16th birthday! Yesterday was such a fun day. I hope the rest of the trip is as entertaining as yesterday.
