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.

Two years ago, the amazing girls in Troop 607 decided to go to Yellowstone National Park. To ensure every girl in the troop could attend, each girl had to sell 292 packages of Girl Scout Cookies, 5,500 packages. The girls surpassed this goal by 2,000 packages!

19 girls and 11 adults made the trip for four days and three nights. They stayed just steps away from Old Faithful and Mammoth Hot Springs. The girls hiked and saw geysers, gorgeous hot spring pools, buffalo, bears, elk, and more.

The best part is there were no televisions, phones, very limited cellular service, or WIFI!
