ADELAIDE Y.

I like Girl Scouts because Girl Scouts teaches girls leadership, business, and how to work with others. I also like Girl Scouts because I like going to all the fun events they host like the Spooky Sleepover at the Science Center, Cranford Encampment, and seining at Sandy Hook. This organization teaches you life skills but is also really fun! Now that I am older, I want to help out my community and actually start my very own projects. I’m looking forward to many more opportunities in the future to show leadership and community.
