Over the past couple of years I have had the opportunity to talk to many Girl Scout alumnae. I have had the privilege of writing about these amazing women who started out as Girl Scouts right in our own backyard.
Some are now CEO’s of companies, some went on to continue to make the world a better place by being part of AmeriCorps and the Peace Corp, some are in careers that they learned they loved through Girl Scouts. One thing they all had in common is they had amazing Girl Scout stories to share.
When I would contact some of the women about sharing their stories, they would say that they didn’t think it was anything special. I always said to them that it was special because it was their Girl Scout experience. What better a way to tell parents how great the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is then to profile successful women who once were Girl Scouts. The women I talked to said if it wasn’t for Girl Scouts they may not be where they are today. How cool is that? To know that Girl Scouts had that big of an impact on so many women?
