Being a delegate has been one of the best experiences of my life!

Being a delegate has been one of the best experiences of my life. Not only did I learn so much in the months leading up to National Council Session, I learned even more in the three days of session. It was incredible meeting people from all over the country, and hearing their thoughts and opinions about all seven proposals. Speaking of proposals, Girl Scouts has made history by adding the word “anti-racism” into the preamble of the GSUSA constitution. I had the opportunity to be on the resource team for this proposal, which was one of the most eye-opening moments of my life. I learned so much, and the feeling of pride and success after hearing the proposal was passed was unexplainable. It’s hard to imagine that I helped make history happen, and I’m so proud of the entire team for working so hard. NCS has been such a great experience, and I hope to be a delegate in the future!

Getting the chance to participate at NCS as a delegate was a life changing opportunity for me for so many reasons. Even as a girl delegate, there was never a moment throughout the conference where I felt my voice wasn’t being heard. Our thoughts and feelings about the important issues for the future of Girl Scouts were prioritized and vocalized by everyone at NCS. I was constantly encouraged and inspired to share my thoughts and experiences on topics.

As someone who grew up in a multicultural space, the sentiment of “being seen” as yourself with the many identities and characteristics you bear that was shared by one of the key speakers at NCS really resonated with me. We live in a world that is filled with diversity, so the idea of allowing everyone to express
themselves has become more important than ever before.

It was an absolute honor to have this opportunity. I’m proud to call myself a Girl Scout and I hope the future young generations of Girl Scouts can experience the same wonder at NCS as I did.
