When she's a Girl Scout, she’s also a G.I.R.L. – Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader. Sarah B. is 100 percent G.I.R.L.! Sarah is an Ambassador in Troop 4358 as well as an assistant Troop leader for Daisy troop 4042. But it doesn’t stop there, she is also working hard on her Gold Award.
Sarah has been in Girl Scouts for 13 years, starting out as a Daisy. According to Sarah, growing up in Girl Scouts has made a strong impact on her character, “I’m confident when communicating with others, courageous when attempting new things, and considerate to myself and others when overcoming obstacles.”
When it comes to her work on Girl Scout awards, Sarah has learned to strive for more than personal success in life by giving back to her community. “Working on awards has fostered important skills and traits that are necessary to be a good leader. For example, time management, communication, determination and adaptability have all improved from working on awards.”
Sarah’s favorite part about Girl Scouts is creating and maintaining friendships. “I have another family who has my back. These people are always in my corner supporting me, from marathon card games to cleaning up our community, these influential women and girls have taught me the significance of having a group to turn to,” Sarah shared.
Have you met Sarah before? If not, you’ve probably noticed her artwork at Girl Scout functions! At every Girl Scout event, Sarah leaves her mark by drawing Rosie The Riveter, whether she’s working with sidewalk chalk, creating a button or doodling on a piece of paper. “I believe Rosie the Riveter’s message of independence, strength and giving back is a message all girls should carry.” Sarah leaves behind these images to share Rosie’s message with others.
When Sarah’s looking for a fun-filled afternoon she’s curling up with a new book, watching movie marathons and spending quality time with her best friends and family.
