Hi! My name is Addison J. I am 11-years-old and a current Girl Scout Cadette. When I was a Junior, I did something pretty amazing that I will always remember. I earned all of the Junior badges!
It all started when my mom , who is also my troop leader, let me take a look at the badge book to see if I was interested in any badges that I wanted to earn on my own. And, of course, there was – The Musician badge! Since I was very interested in guitar at the time, I thought it would be fun. It took me no time at all to earn it. That sparked a sudden interest in Junior badges and I decided to earn another one and it all spiraled from there.
I started earning harder badges like ones that involved going on mini-field trips. My mom and I scheduled different days to go take adventures to different places in Colorado such as: The Molly Brown House for the Playing in the Past badge, leading the Pledge of Allegiance with my troop at a city council meeting for the Inside Government badge, and many more fun activities.
My experience isn’t just about earning all of the Junior badges, but also earning all three of the Journeys too, which led me to earn the Summit Award! I learned a lot earning all of these badges. My Girl Scout sisters and mom were especially supportive toward me, which also led my troop members to earning their Summit Awards too. I will always remember my experience as a fun one!
