When I enter grade school, I joined an organization named “Girl Scouts”. I am active on it. At a very young age, the only thing I knew about it was I can make more friends and enjoy every activity. Until I was invited by a co-girl scout to participate in her work. She is a grade 9 student that time and I was just on my 6th grade. I was wondering what kind of work it is. And because of my curiosity to know more about it, I joined. At the end of her work, I found out that it was a project of the Girl Scouts Organization, the Chief Girl Scouts Medal Scheme (CGSMS). It helps every other girls to build their self-confidence and be able to help the world to make a better place. When I stepped on my 7th grade, I became more active of being a girl scout. My teacher encouraged me to participate in every activity that’s why I am able to go on different places. And also when I started to explore more about it. That’s when I started to attend different seminars and off-campus camps. I was elected as the treasurer of the Senior Planning Board of the Batangas City Council. And that develops my leadership skills. On the camping, it helps us to be more independent. They let us cook our foods without the help of an adult. Through participating it I earned a lot of badges. Because of the dedication and activeness that I showed, my troop leader asks me to be one of the candidates for the CGSMS. I don’t know what to feel that time but because I want to prove myself as a girl, i said “yes” to my troopleader. I started in attending the orientation for me to know more about it.
