“Girl Scouting another way” learned

June 24, 2013

By Lexi Tichenor, Communications & Marketing Intern

Capture1When I was younger I took part in Girl Scouts for a number of years and enjoyed every minute of it! I can remember many great experiences, but the most memorable were the many friendships I built within and outside of my troop. At the time, I didn’t think that these friendships would last as long as they have. I am still in contact with several of the girls that I met through Girl Scouts.

Being able to attend Girl Scout Camp was my favorite part of Girl Scouts; it was very exciting to buy my first mess kit! I loved the variety of activities that took place at camp such as making jewelry, games, learning new things, and staying up giggling after the leaders told us it was bedtime!! I really value having the opportunity to spend a few nights away from my parents exploring the wonders of Girl Scout Camp. It not only taught me to make good decisions on my own, but to be knowledgeable and confident in my actions.

Recently, I have been taking part in Girl Scouts in a different way.  Over the course of the summer, I will be interning with Girl Scouts-NC Coastal Pines. I am studying Public Relations and Marketing at Ashford University and will be working closely with the Communications & Marketing team for the Council. This opportunity will not only provide me with valuable skills to take with me in to the workplace but also to help me to grow as an individual.

So far I have learned many new things about the organization and have been adding to my skill set. I am learning how to adjust my writing style to communicate with audiences on each of the social media platforms and gaining experience with traditional new releases.  Communicating through the different social media platforms allows us to share inspiring stories and successes, share the many benefits of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, and encourage others become involved with the organization’s programs and initiatives.

So do be sure to join us on Facebook, Twitter and Linked In!

Girl Scouts has helped me grow in many ways, and is continuing to help me grow. I highly encourage you and others that you know to become part of the Girl Scout organization in some way whether it be a Girl Scout, leader, volunteer, or an employee. I can’t wait to grow even more!
