Girl Awards: November 2011 Archives
Hi, my name is Mikayla and I have been a Girl Scout for 3 years. I'm a second year Junior in Troop 8056, in Mobile. We are a very active troop.
We go on exciting adventures to new places and get to meet a lot of new people. I get to see things I would not have seen if it wasn't for Girl Scouts. Last year, I earned my bronze award.
I earned my bronze award by collecting clothes, toys, old cell phones, and even donating cookies to the Penelope House. Just in case you are wondering, I collected old cell phones so someone could fix them and be able to call 911 when they were in trouble. I also did chores around my house to earn money for them. The Penelope House is a safe haven for women and children who are being abused and need to get away to a safe place. The most important thing I learned from this was that not everyone has the life they want, even though they deserve it. And that is how I earned my bronze award
