Did you participate in the Girl Scout program? I did. I was a Brownie and a Girl Scout. I remember earning badges and having fun adventures with my friend Berit.
Through twitter, I have become friends with the amazing Girl Scout Utah team. They won my heart after I won a box of Girl Scout cookies during a twitter party. I was excited when the cookies arrived in the mail, but was so impressed with the hand written Thank You card from Annie. Then, a few weeks later we met up for lunch at Kneaders and got to learn more about the Girl Scout program.
I am impressed with how progressive and forward thinking the Girl Scouts are. Annie told us that they have a media training program. So, when a news reporter wants to interview someone about the Girl Scouts, they are able to interview actual girl scouts, not their patents or leaders. How great is this? I would have loved to learn media training as a Girl Scout.
