It’s that time of year again! That’s right, all of your favorite cookies are coming back for the Girl Scouts’ annual cookie ride and this time they’re going digital. While the coronavirus still lingers, the young women, girls and lifelong members of this extraordinary organization are finding innovative ways to further empower girls across the country. As a Girl Scout, however, it’s not just about cookies.
Founded in 1912, the organization has taught girls how to lead, find their passion and invest in their future. Do you need some proof of how incredible this organization is? Let these extraordinary women and former scouts guide you! Taylor Swift is not only one of the best-selling, highly decorated singer-songwriters of all time, she is a former Girl Scout!
That’s right, before Taylor was selling records, she was selling cookies. Honestly, it’s no wonder that always Singer is a former girl scout. Throughout her career, Taylor has used her voice and platform seriously to try to be an agent for change and progress. There is absolutely no doubt she definitely makes Girl Scouts all over the world so proud.
But Taylor isn’t the only famous former Girl Scout. We are not at all surprised that the former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was a girl scout even in her youth. The inspirational political figure likely got her to debate politics, ethics, and economics when she was a daisy or a brownie. Decades later, Clinton has emerged as a powerful voice in politics and an advocate for women’s equality.
It’s amazing to see what Girl Scouts can do. Right now, your own little scout might be selling cookies. But one day she could win Grammy Awards like Taylor and serve off competitors like the Grand Slam champion Venus Williamsor remind young girls that their voice is as important as Hillary Clinton.
