Why do girls need Girl Scouts? That is a question that is often asked; the answer varies from girl to girl. The journey begins with the Girl Scout environment itself. A girl’s leadership blooms among other girls—away from school pressures, social cliques, and boys—where she can be herself and try new things.
The Girl Scout experience gives young women the confidence and the tools to lead—to find, inside the uncertain girl, the young woman who will make a difference in her world. For Girl Scout Roxine the answer is becoming clearer as she reflects on her experiences as a Cadette Girl Scout in Central Maryland.
