I am proud to be a Girl Scout because I am 18 years old. Countless times I have been asked, “aren’t you too old to be a Girl Scout?” And my answer will always remain no. I will be a Girl Scout for life because the environment and skills scouting has brought me is matched by nothing else.
Girl Scouts impacted my attitude toward life, tremendously. The leadership skills I currently possess were entirely because of my involvement in Girl Scouts. It was the key to so many of my successes and triumphs. I recently went overseas to an international Scouting camp because of Girl Scouts. Not everyone can say they have been overseas, and met people from all over the world.
I took on the task of earning my Gold Award because impacting my community has always been a passion for me. Girl Scouts really gave me the confidence to make a difference. The Gold Award project in itself is meant to change beyond that community aspect. I have found no greater joy than changing the lives around me.
I am privileged to say I was apart of the adopt a soldier program through Girl Scouts. Knowing that I was making a difference in a soldier’s life overseas has been so heartwarming for me. I am currently in touch with many of the soldiers my troop adopted and best friends with two. I definitely believe our fighters of America deserve more acknowledgment and adopt a soldier became the perfect answer for me.
Girl Scouts has been around since 1912, for nearly 100 years. It is not only a safe house for girls in the twenty-first century but is also a school of its own. Girl Scouting incorporates moral values such as consideration, honesty, responsibility, and respect - all highlighted in the Girl Scout Law. My own personal accomplishments as a leader would not have been possible without Girl Scouts. So many individuals are changing the world, yet it takes institutions like Girl Scouting to raise those leaders up. Who can say no to camping, or even traveling across the world?

Girl Scouts has taught me how to function in society! It has helped shape me into the woman I am today. It has taught me patience and understanding, love, trust, and respect for my fellow Scouts. Scouts has taught me leadership, confidence, and pulled me through some dark times in my life. I have learned how to effectively hold an audience’s attention, to cook with a Dutch oven, to make friendship bracelets, and that singing while trying desperately to put up a tent in the rain helps to keep the mood light. Girl Scouts is the tack in the middle that holds my pinwheel together.
