My Girl Scout Gold Award Project
For my Girl Scout Gold Award Project, I interviewed 30 inspiring women from around the world and published a book and sharing their experiences. My goal is to make positive female role models more accessible to girls. I hope to inspire girls to work towards their goals by illustrating how women in our society have conquered the odds to become successful in their fields. I want all girls to have a woman to look up to and I hope to make role models more accessible through my book.
Inspiring Women is an anthology of female luminaries’ life lessons and experiences meant to guide and inspire the next generation of young women. Present day leaders and distinguished members of athletics, academia, STEM, public service, and the arts share hardships, triumphs and wisdom highlighting women's unique challenges and offering very human interpretations of success.
I feel there is a shortage of easily accessible positive female role models. My goal for this book was to provide the next generation of young women a collection of real life inspirational stories by interviewing women and sharing their life lessons. More than 200 women were contacted, resulting in the 30 interviews included in this book.
I have learned many life lessons from this project, not only from the advice given in the interviews, but also during the process of completing this book. The advice that resonated most with me was that you have to do what you love and stick with your interests, even when it gets difficult.
