August 2018: Thanks Julianne

When you read the letter to the editor seen in the image above, you see what we call "the Girl Scout Difference" in action. Girl Scouts unleashes the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, L eader)™ in every girl preparing her for a lifetime of leadership. A girl who experiences her first night hike at camp may very well end up accepting a mission on the International Space Station. Troop members who lobby city council for a change in policy or law might hold a seat in Congress one day. Girl Scouts is proven to help girls thrive in five key ways: develop a strong sense of self; display positive values; seek challenges and learn from setbacks; form and maintain healthy relationships; and identify and solve problems in the community. A Girl Scout troop creates a safe space where girls can try new things, develop a range of skills, take on leadership roles, and just be themselves. And yes, we have plenty of fun along the way. As long as there are "parade announcers" who don't realize the needed and relevant role Girl Scouts plays in the lives of girls, there will be a Julianne ready and willing to set him straight. Her letter went viral, touching countless readers who now know what a girl can do. She and her supportive parents even appeared on the Today Show to spread her message. Thanks, Julianne for making the world a better place.
