GSUSA, in partnership with WAGGGS and Dove, recently launched Free Being Me, a global leadership initiative. Combined with It's Your Story—Tell It!

The GSNI Emissary Network provides girls with a chance to be in the spotlight. We asked some of our members to share what the program means to them. Today we have Amy Hoening talking about how the program has impacted her daughter, Grace.

 

Grace has enjoyed representing an organization that she believes in. She really liked the meal at Giovannis where she was able to lead people in a STEM project. She also liked being on the news. Most of all, whatever the assignment she just liked being an example of Girl Scouting.

Get Making with Get Moving:

Makers like making things they're excited about— whether it's a craft, a piece of furniture, a robot, or a computer program. They like exploring new and different materials to
see what they can come up with and recycling old materials to give them a new life.
