10 Traits that Girl Scouts Has Given Me!August 11, 2013
By Destiny O., GSNCCP Girl Board Member
Hi my name is Destiny and I am one of six Girl Scouts to join the Girl Board for the 2013-2014 year. As you may have read in the first Girl Board blog post by Ami, we are all really excited to get started and to share our experiences here on the blog!
Recently, I moved to Quantico, Virginia because my dad is in the military. I am staying in touch with my troop from afar, but I’m really going to miss them! Before we left my co-leader and her daughter, who have been a part of my Girl Scout journey since second grade, gave my mom and I going-away gifts. Both were 3-D collages of our Girl Scout careers, including pictures, patches, and pins. It reminded me of each meeting, event, trip and award that I have had the opportunity to participate in because of Girl Scouts.
Here is a picture of one of the collages – cool, right?
When I looked at the collage and started remembering all of my wonderful experiences, it gave me the idea for this blog post. Earning each badge and pin has taught me invaluable traits and skills that I know will last a lifetime. Here are just the top ten (the full list is far too long!) of traits that I’ve learned through Girl Scouting.

These are traits that I will use throughout my whole life, and I couldn’t have done it without my sisters at Girl Scouts!
