From first grade on, I was in Girl Scouts. It is a wonderful organization which gave me a great deal of skills and experience. I was a bit of an overachiever in it and earned most of the awards possible.
When I went for my First Class Award, they were transitioning into a new program so I earned both the old and the new program which included the Silver and Gold Awards. These awards were much more complicated than just earning a single badge or challenge. The Gold Award is very much the equivalent of earning the Eagle Scout Award in Boy Scouts.
I also was the youngest ever in my area to earn the Green Angel Pin for outstanding troop leaders. As part of earning my Gold Award, I was a troop leader for a Brownie troop (grades 1 to 3). I always had assistant leaders who were over the age of 18, since I was still a minor, but I ran the troop.
Even now as an adult. I still try to live my life very much by the Girl Scout Law as it was when I was in Girl Scouts. Changes have happened since then, but I still believe that Girl Scouts is a wonderful organization for teaching skills and providing experiences that are both fun and educational. Skills you can use your whole lifetime.
