I became a Girl Scout in first grade as a Brownie and continued all the way through high school culminating in achieving my Gold Award. Some of my most fond memories are from camping with my troop (my mom was one of our camping parents so I got to spend a lot of extra time with her). I loved selling cookies as well, booth sales were my favorite and taught me how to approach people in a way that was warm and welcoming and could lead to a great sale. Many of the pivotal experiences I had growing up happened in Girl Scouts and now I get to share that with my current troop as a troop leader! It’s been so special to watch the Girl Scout legacy continue with new generations of kids.
