I'm Leah, a Senior Scout from Satsuma. I've been a Girl Scout for 11 years, and recently earned my Gold Award. This is my first post, so I'm hoping some other girls will help me out, and post some interesting stuff!
So, has anyone ever heard of Satsuma? .. didn't think so. Satsuma is a small town, north of Mobile. Satsuma High School has around 1,500 students. In Satsuma, football (mainly) and baseball are the sports of choice. A lot of the students don't put as much emphasis on academics as they should. Well, as much as I think they should. I'm a dork I guess you could say. I play soccer, which is another one of those little-emphasized sports, and most of my friends are basically dorks too. In a school that isn't focused on what I am, I'm sure I'm not the only one counting down the days until college.
For me, college is a chance to live somewhere that is totally focused on the same things I am. I'm hoping to get a scholarship to Auburn University and study pharmacy.
Surely there are other girls out there who feel the same way I do. I'd like to hear your story.
