How long have you been a Girl Scout?
How has Girl Scouts impacted your life?
Girl Scouts has given me the confidence to be a strong woman in a male dominated society.
Why did you take on the task of earning a Gold Award?
I decided to take on the daunting task of the Gold Award to prove to myself that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to and as a way to push myself in making a difference in the lives of young girls.
Why are you proud of being a Girl Scout?
I am very proud to be a part of such a great program and strong community that encourages the growth of young girls into mature and confident women.
What is your favorite Girl Scout program?
I loved spending my summers at Camp Four Echoes with all the crazy counselors, exciting canoeing adventures, and nights under the stars. Some of my best childhood memories are from this Girl Scout camp!
What are your (immediate) future plans?
I am studying Accounting at Loyola Marymount University with the goal of getting my CPA in 3 years when I graduate.
Share a joy moment from Girl Scouts:
I loved cookies and selling them too! One year that I attended the Super Seller Celebration, my name was randomly drawn and I won the giant stuffed Dream Bear. Right after the program ended, I headed over to my mom’s coworker’s house where Kaylee, a two year old girl, had just gotten home from open heart surgery. Seeing her smile when I gave her the life-size bear is a moment I will never forget.
Why should the public support Girl Scouts?
Girl Scouts promotes personal growth through exploration and community service. This is vital in today’s society and thus needs public support.
