“I joined Girl Scouts at my church when I was 7 or 8. I learned so much from (Girl Scouting)—leadership, empowerment, drive, and determination. Girl Scouts gave me the opportunity to come together with other girls, work together, grow, and learn. My first plane ride at 13 was to attend a Girl Scouts leadership conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It was eye opening for an inner-city kid. I believe in the power to paint the vision of the future for girls. Our girls have the capacity to change the world, we just need to give them the space to dream big and drive towards the goal.”
