Inspiration all Around

Last night at the Young Women of Distinction ceremony, many of the award recipients mentioned in their acceptance speeches that they'd been inspired to go after their Gold Award after attending a Young Women of Distinction event at a previous Girl Scout Convention.

Our six girls from Alaska are surrounded by inspiration this week.  They are meeting other girls, listening and talking to accomplished adults, attending Conversations of Consequence about topics of importance and concern to them, and learning skills from marketing to technology and science to  leadership.  And, of course, they are also having lots of fun!  

Here's what a few of them had to say:

"This is amazing.  The girls here are so inspirational. It is something I'll remember for years to come."
- Kharissa

"This is really special, and I have never done anything like this before in my life."
- Mykaela 

This is what Girl Scouting's all about!  Opportunities, new experiences, adventure, inspiration, and of course, discovering, connecting and taking action!  

We are so proud of these girls, and all our Alaska Girl Scouts.  We can't wait to see what amazing things you do in your lives, and how you will continue to be inspired, and inspire others through your actions.
