Why do you love Con Mi MADRE?

Con Mi MADRE had its 21st annual Leadership Summit, July 12-3, 2013. Mother and daughter teams from more than 15 schools came to the University of Texas at Austin to get a feel for the college life. This year there were four separate tracks: a middle school track, high school track, G.R.A.D track, and mother track. We asked girls during the summit what they love about being in Con Mi MADRE.
