My Gold Award project was entitled “Soarin’ with STEM.” The purpose of my project was to motivate and encourage young girls to view STEM subjects as a great avenue for their future careers. Currently, there is a huge under-representation of women in STEM fields, particularly due to the negative impact of media and marketing in the toy and film industries as well as a lack of exposure to STEM opportunities at an early age.

One of my most vivid Girl Scout childhood memories is a troop trip to Washington DC. We learned about the US government, and I was inspired by the stately feel of the city with the Capitol, White House and Smithsonian.

After taking Sign Language class, I realized that the deaf community has limited exposure to many of the activities I have enjoyed. I was inspired to share my love of robotics with the students at New Jersey School for the Deaf. I started a Jr. FIRST Lego League Robotics team for them teaching them about simple machines, engineering, and programming. They created a Lego model and poster around the theme of recycling. They presented this model and poster at an expo and were overjoyed when they won the “Explosive Minds” award.

G.I.R.L. 2017 is for every girl who wants to stand up, take charge, and change the world, for herself and for all of us. The gathering will offer one-of-a-kind fun, inspiring speakers and enlightening educational opportunities. This will be my second time attending this event. It truly is amazing to see Girl Scouting take over a city – and make our presence known. The 2014 event in Salt Lake City was educational, inspirational and fun. Being there truly sparked passion in me for the collective power of our movement! I hope that many of you have the opportunity to attend a national gathering at some point during your Girl Scout career.
