I had the honor of attending the 2019 Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore Gold Award Ceremony. Not only did I get to witness the many talented Girl Scouts receive their awards, I also had the opportunity to serve as the Mistress of Ceremonies for the event. I loved being able to share my experiences as a Girl Scout with the audience to inspire the future generation of leaders. As an intern for The Journal NJ, I was also asked to cover this event. I explained the purpose and function of the Gold Award, interviewed the hosts and guest speakers, and focused on the four Girl Scouts from Monmouth County. My article appears in the July issue of The Journal and highlights the girls’ outstanding achievements.
