I am a G.I.R.L.

I’ve been in Girl Scouts for four years and I love it! I love Girl Scouts because I enjoy the crafts, activities, (especially camping), and I love the life lessons that go with it. But, what I love the most is friendship and meeting new friends.

I’m a go-getter because I set big goals and work hard to achieve them. In 2017, I sold over 2,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies and was the top seller of my service unit and in the Top 100 sellers in Colorado. I’m proud of the many badges I’ve earned including the Daisy and Brownie Summit Awards, and it’s my goal to someday earn the Gold Award.

I’m an innovator by brainstorming ideas for new and extraordinary activities to earn badges with my troop. I also helped motivate my troop during cookie sales so that we qualified for Cookie Camp. Despite being a troop with 16 girls, we made it!

Girl Scouts has helped me be a risk-taker by giving me courage to approach new students and welcome them while building new friendships. It’s given me confidence to take risks that others might not.

I have been a leader at school by standing up for other students when I felt they were picked on or in an unfair situation.
