I become involved with Girl Scouts when I was in first grade. I enjoyed the meetings, earning badges, going camping, and the singing of songs. Girl Scouts gave me confidence to speak in front of others, be a leader, and to persevere even in difficult times. I am honored to have been a leader for 10 years while living in Las Vegas, and helping with a troop in my small community. I became a Lifetime Member because I feel scouting is important to small communities, and gives girls a chance to learn and explore.
