Through The Eyes of A Girl Scout is a new feature on our blog and is a multi-part series that explores different parts of a girl’s life, impact, achievement, and experiences through Girl Scouts. Molly, our narrator, is a metaphor for every Girl Scout in our council.
My dreams are possible because of YOU!
One day, I dream to be an astronaut! Why? Because I love science! Especially when I’m learning about outer space in Mrs. Smith’s class! I can’t wait to learn more about it next year and join the Space Club at school!
I KNOW that I can do anything I dream of doing, and I know that it’s all because of YOU! When I’m not thinking about school, or what kind of movie I’m going to watch with my best friend Jamie, I’m usually attending Girl Scout troop meetings or dreaming up ways to achieve my dreams of becoming an astronaut! I owe Girl Scouts a large part of my ambition and drive to achieve my dreams. I know I wouldn’t have Girl Scouts without supporters like you!
My membership fee gets me in, but it doesn’t cover all the amazing opportunities Girl Scouts have to offer, like STEM projects, outdoor adventures, camp and unique opportunities I would never have access to without being a part of Girl Scouts. My troop leader, Miss Gwen, works at NASA and has been a huge mentor to me! She tells me all about her work in ways that I can understand. I can’t wait to keep learning more! Plus, I love the projects we get to work on as Girl Scouts! Although I am learning about STEM in school, I get to learn way more as a Girl Scout. We dig in deep, like MAKING rockets instead of learning about them, and having FUN while learning about these concepts.

The STEM projects I work on with my troop teach me so much about science, technology, engineering, and math…things that dig in beyond what I learn in school! I am so glad to be a Girl Scout, because I’m ahead of the curve, and feel confident in my knowledge and abilities. I know that this would never be able to happen without YOU! Donors like you are the reason I have Miss Gwen as an amazing mentor, the reason I am confident, and the reason I am learning so much. Our cookie and membership funds are amazing, and we earn every penny; but they don’t cover enough to support the amazing opportunities we have access to right now. I feel lucky and it’s because of donors like YOU!
Please consider donating to the End of Year Appeal so that girls like me can continue to learn, grow, and be the best versions of ourselves! NONE of this could be possible without the generosity of donors like YOU!
