In the nation's Capital for the 2016 Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S), students from around the country spent a week learning how their rights and freedoms took shape, and the importance of those rights and freedoms as they enjoy them today. We caught up with a couple of the Y.E.S. squad afterwards to see how much they really did enjoy their week in D.C.
