For the past 10 years I've been part of an amazing organization, The Girl Scouts of America. The stereotypical perception of a girl scout is normally of a cute, uniformed, irresistibly adorable seven-year-old girl who lures people into buying their sinfully good cookies.
Although this is somewhat true, being a girl scout is much more than that. It's a sisterhood. It's about overcoming fears, empowerment, development and community service.
This summer my girl scout sisters and I went on one of our last trips together before we enter our last year in scouting. One of the things I love about girl scouts is that it always takes me out of my comfort zone. Our motto during the trip seemed to be that:
I never thought I'd be spontaneous enough to do both white water rafting AND tree climbing, but I did during this trip. The truth is, I actually would do it again!
Here are the highlights of our trip:
