My name is Aliyah. I'm an 8th grader at Baldwin Arts and Academic Magnet School. Along with loving Girl Scouts, I love playing volleyball. I've been a Girl Scout since I was in 1st grade. I've had lots of fun too.
The event I liked the most was when we went with our troop leader and co-leader to a huge Girl Scout Event. It was awesome! The companies that Girl Scouts get cookies, fall product and uniforms from were all there. I met professional basketball players, took a picture with Tony the Tiger, tried out computers, and we played games like golf, basketball and archery.
I also enjoyed going to Florida to the beach with my troop. Even though it rained while we were there, we got a chance to see the white sand and learn what the different color flags on the beach meant and we even built sand castles. Some of these helped us earn a Girl Scout patch. I am looking forward to being able to travel to other states while I am in Girl Scouts.
I am proud to say I'm a part of 100 years of Girl Scouting. I enjoyed the 100th celebration at Alabama Shakespeare Festival. There were tables where you could do basket weaving, make key chains, earn patches, buy cotton candy and Girl Scout cookies. My favorite table was the face painting booth. The girls painted a picture of a volleyball on my face.
