But why I haven’t posted in a while was because I was taking a “Journey side adventure”. I was earning my Gold Award. The Gold Award is the highest award you can receive in Girl Scouts and it is designed to help girls picture a goal and to work hard to meet it. Or, so that it fits this Journey, they can picture a “dream” and they can achieve it.
My Gold was environmentally based and it was on a community level. I evaluated around 1500 yards in three different neighborhoods in the city of
, to see if any of them qualified
for a free street tree. This project was and is, called Neighborwoods. Pflugerville
On working towards my “dream” I learned valuable skills that will help me later on in the future. A few: People skills, grant writing, public speaking, presentation of my project and of myself and perseverance.
I am glad that I have finished, because it gives me joy, knowing I have completed such a high award. I’m also proud, because it has shown me that I can achieve what I dream, if I keep at it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kA5STFOKp4
