Anna spoke to Sweety High about her amazing Girltopia experiences in an exclusive interview!

“I just love watching girls coming together as a community and you see this exchange of ideas,” Anna said. “You see girls helping other girls. I think that’s just a beautiful thing to watch.”

Anna was also one of the speakers on BYOU Magazine’s Celebrity “Girl Talk” panel at Girltopia, where she got to share her personal experiences.

“I’m really thankful to be here and it’s extremely fun to talk about what I like to do, which is write,” Anna said. “I hope to foster other creative minds out there.”

Thousands and thousands of Girl Scouts attended the Girltopia event, where they had the chance to meet celebrities and hear about all of the huge opportunities open to girls.

“I think it’s important to remind girls that they can do anything that they set their minds to,” she said. “Once they find something that they’re passionate about they should go and chase after it.”
