“In Girl Scouts, leadership is not just about building future leaders– it’s about building girl leaders for today.”
Our communications office recently did an interview to the Girl Scouts of our school community. The interview was part of the Girl Scouts Week in which troupes all over the world engaged in many activities. Our girls where not the exception, and during that week they were very excited to talk to us about what is means to be a Girl Scout!
Some of the question they were asked include: What does being a Girl Scout mean to you?, How do Girl Scouts create awareness?, What do badges mean to Girl Scouts?, What do you like about being a Girl Scout?, and How do Girl Scouts change the World?
We were amazed with their answers as they opened their minds and hearts about being part of Troupe 052!
“What I like about being a Girl Scout is that you get to be creative.” “I like helping others and showing them that no matter how little our life is, it always matters.” “I want to help build a better community.”
Among the things the girls discussed, they mentioned that they engage in many activities with which they try to inspire people, share ideas, and express their creativity. They also explained what badges mean and why they earn them. It was very inspiring to hear the girls expressing what they have learned: to be fair, to help the ones in need, to be proud of ourselves, to create awareness of what happens in their society and in the world. Their answers were very compelling.
We also interviewed a girl scout mom, Rita Tamargo, who gave us another insight of what it means for these girls to be a girl scout. “It helps them build their self-esteem, they learn how to take on leadership roles, and they learn how to overcome their shyness. They build better communication skills and become self-confident. It is truly a life-changing experience for them.”
We want to thank all our girls for doing this interview for Robinson School News! Thank you Camila Gómez, Elena Haeussler, Paulina Rullán, Mia Llera, Claudia Delgado, Andrea Coifman, Lana Bragan, Isabel Morales , Isabelle Álvarez, María Josefa Castro, and Gabriela Márquez!
