Meet the 2017-2018 Media Girlz Team

September 18, 2017

This year, Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines has launched the new Media Girlz program. Media Girlz is a year-long program that gives girls from across our council the chance to be included in various media opportunities and to practice their public speaking skills.

During the 2017-2018 program year, these girls will be the faces and voices of our council and help get out message across.

Let’s meet our 2017-2018 Media Girlz

 

Ivy B., Ambassador, Wake County
“I like being a Girl Scout because it gives me so many opportunities for leadership and travel, which are two of my passions. My troop hosts many events for young scouts, as well as chances to work at camps.”

 

Rylie C., Cadette, Carteret County
“I like being a Girl Scout because I get to be with friends, help the community, and have Girl Scout fun.”

 

 

Madeline F., Cadette, Brunswick County
“I really enjoy camping because it gives our troop time to bond and try new things and find solutions to problems we come across.”

 

Allyson H., Cadette, Harnett County
“I like being a Girl Scout because I get to meet new people experience new things, and I am free to be who I am and I get to practice being a better leader.”

 

Christina L., Senior, Pitt County
“I love serving my community, reaching for goals, and earning badges when I do something new.”

 

Caraline M., Senior, Harnett County
“My favorite Girl Scout activity is the Fall Product Program. The reason is because I hope to open my own business one day and the program gives me the necessary skills to be successful.”

 

Kayla M., Junior, Durham County
“I like being a Girl Scout because it empowers me to teaches me how to be a business woman.”

Abby R., Cadette, Wake County
“I like being a Girl Scout because it opens me up to new experiences and lets me do things I would not be able to do without Girl Scouts.”

 

 Marissa S., Junior, Johnston County
“I like being a Girl Scout because I get to have the chance to do new activities, make new friends, go hiking and camping.”

 

Lauryn T., Cadette, Wake County
“My favorite Girl Scout activity has been the Silver Award Project. I got to use writing, art, and music to help other people in nursing and assistant living homes.”

 

Lexi T., Junior, Wake County
“My favorite Girl Scout activity is when my troop went camping at Umstead State Park. It’s my favorite because we went hikes, had a campfire, sang Girl Scout songs, and slept in cabins.”

 

Giada T., Junior, Orange County
“I like being a Girl Scout because it gives me an opportunity to do several different things like camping, service projects, and selling cookies.”

 

Emma W., Cadette, New Hanover County

April 17, 2017

by Jodi Gilbert, Communications Manager

Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines is searching for rising Girl Scout Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors who love being in the spotlight and who ooze the courage, confidence, and character of a true G.I.R.L. (go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, and leader) to join the 2017-2018 Media Girlz Team!

Media Girlz is a year-long program that will give girls across central and eastern North Carolina the chance to be included in various media opportunities like television, radio, and newspaper interviews and be the girl voices of our 41-county footprint.

Looking for reasons why girls should apply to be a Media Girl? Here’s are our top three!

  1. Enhance Your Communication Skills

Having great communication skills is key in almost every career, relationship, and in everyday life. By being a Media Girl your written and verbal communications skills will not only improve, but you will gain confidence in these skills! Media Girlz offers opportunities for girls to speak publicly, engage with television and newspaper reporters and radio personalities, and attend council events where you will be talking to council staff and volunteers.

  1. Explore Career Options

Media Girlz is perfect for girls looking to explore their interest in television, radio, writing, production, and more! What better way to get a jump start on exploring new careers options than getting to experience it hands-on? With this program, girls will experience the media world and learn how the news is produced. Girls will learn proper business and interview etiquette, along with having a great addition to put on their college applications and resumes.

  1. Elevate your Girl Scout Story

If you’re passionate about Girl Scouts and love sharing your Girl Scout story – Media Girlz is the perfect fit for you. When you talk to the media, you will share your leadership experience and help spread the word about Girl Scouts across our council. You’ll get to show the world that Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development organization for girls and young women, and share stories about how girls like you are making an impact in world every day.

Girls looking to make new friends and become role models for girls across the North Carolina Coastal Pines council can fill out an application to be a Media Girl today!
