    2023 National Gold Award Scholarship!

    Girl Scouting has always been an essential part of my identity. It was the program where I discovered my love of learning, made lifelong friends, and cultivated my passions. This past year, I had the privilege of completing my Girl Scout Gold Award, called Girls Who Soar. I hosted a series of workshops introducing the wonderful world of aviation to young women in my community, and I am still working on sharing it with girls around the country through my advocacy efforts. I was recently awarded the 2023 National Gold Award Scholarship of $10,000 from the Girl Scouts of the USA. I am incredibly humbled and grateful for this opportunity…

I recently had the privilege of meeting with two incredible women that serve as director and vice president on the Girl Scout programming and experience sectors. They reached out to me initially via email after them receiving word of the petition and advocacy efforts, and seeing the petition’s support. Major strides have been taken in the Girl Scouting program, including reevaluating curriculum and badges to better serve the Girl Scouts of the future. Due to these initiatives, the creation of an aviation or engineering badge…

    Petition – 700+ Supporters!

    I have not gotten any word from GSUSA regarding my proposal, initiative, or petition. I am hoping to receive news soon from National, especially since the petition now has over 700 supporters! We are so close to the 1,000 mark. With the continued networking and interest, nationally and locally, I am positive we can get there. I am so grateful to all of the Girl Scout councils that have reached back, shared the petition, and advocated for my cause. Many councils even want to start their own aviation program to inspire young women. It is so empowering to see the comments on the petition explaining people’s reasons for signing and…

    Outreach and Sustainability Update

    I recently sent out an email to councils across the nation to gain traction on the Girls Who Soar Program. The more signatures on the petition, the more likely the GSUSA Board of Directors are motivated to make a change! Several councils have contacted me back about distributing my information and flyer below, or even collaborating with me to create their own program. I hope that Girl Scouts all of the nation can learn about and be exposed to the wonders of aviation.
