Crocs Patch was Awesome

While earning this patch, I really enjoyed designing my own Crocs. A fact that I learned is that Crocs’ leadership team is more than 50% run by women. I thought that was interesting!

I just earned the Crocs patch

Submitted by Aubrey Y.

I’m a first year Brownie and I just earned Crocs’ Come As You Are patch! I really had a lot of fun working on this with my mom since we can’t have regular Girl Scout meetings because of COVID-19. Thank you Girl Scouts of Colorado so I could keep busy and still get to do Girl Scout fun things!

I learned to that I can be a champion in my own life by having more courage, being more confident, staying strong, and being a good role model and mentor, and being a G.I.R.L. (go-getter, innovator,  risk-taker, and leader).

Girl Scouts of Colorado is proud to partner with Crocs to teach girls to Come As You Are™! Based in Niwot, Colorado, Crocs’ proclamation to the world is to be comfortable in your own shoes. Everyone is unique in their own way and at Crocs, we celebrate one-of-a-kinds and stand together with all kinds.
