I had no idea that this was where I would end up while on my first convention in the eighth grade. Writing for the world's largest teenage Jewish community. I would have never met any of the people I have met outside of this organization, which makes them all very important to me.

I realized that this is where I was meant to be because of one specific BBG. I met her only last year, yet even though we are two years apart, I don't know how I lived my entire life without her. Since then, she has been my favorite person and the reason I attend events; we got together for our chapter spirit dance.

I met two more of my favorite people as I got to know her. Only one of the four of us who ran for chapter board this past spring was elected. I had hoped that it wouldn’t ruin our friendship, and thankfully it didn't. I adore these four girls so much. I'm a sophomore; one of them is a senior, and the other two are juniors. I'll be losing them shortly, but the nicest thing about BBG is that you make friends with everyone. I now have my own adorable littles, and I can't wait to get to know them and help them meet other people, just as I did. 

Lindsay is a BBG from Long Island, NY and loves volleyball.
