Erin, Gold Award Girl Scout, Age 18
“Because of Girl Scouts, I have been exposed to worlds that I hadn’t understood before. Helping and volunteering has helped make me become a better person, a better citizen, and a more understanding friend. “
A Girl Scout of 13 years, Erin learned that she can be the change she wants to see in her own community. For her Gold Award project she developed an arts library with 600+ books and "artboxes" for her local children's hospital to entertain and inspire the creativity of young patients during their stay.
