What Being a Girl Scout Taught Me

What Being a Girl Scout Taught Me

Being a Girl Scout for 11 years has had such a positive impact on my life.


I have been a Girl Scout for the past 11 years. I joined the organization when I was in second grade. This organization has had a huge impact in shaping me into who I am today. I learned communication skills, leadership skills, and ways to better my community. I was introduced to a group of girls, and we formed strong bonds with one another that we would never have had without Girl Scouts. Having a strong support group of girls was really helpful, and somewhat empowering.

The most important thing i got out of this organization was how much good my group and I accomplished. We were able to do community service that affected so many lives. One of the most influential things for me is when we visited Rosie's Place. Rosie's Place is a shelter for homeless women and their children. As a group, we were able to raise money and go cook dinner for the women in the shelter. We prepared and served the meals to the women, and it was amazing to be helping other people. We also were able to do community service like Cradles to Crayons, sending cards to the troops, donating to the local food pantry, as well as fundraising activities.

Girl Scouts has also presented many exciting opportunities that I would not have had without the organization. We went glass blowing a couple of years ago, which was something that I would have never thought of doing. We also went zip lining, white water rafting, and camping, things that are totally out of my comfort zone. Girl Scouts pushed me to get out of my comfort zone, and without it, I may not have experienced these opportunities.

I encourage younger girls, and girls, in general, to think about joining this great organization. Not only is Girl Scouts rewarding because you help others, but it also makes community service enjoyable and gives you experience. Girl Scouts isn't just about the cookies, but it's about empowering young women to become strong leaders and be fearless in pursuit of their dreams.

5 Wedding Hairstyles For The Bride With Rapunzel-Like Hair

Stunning wedding hairstyles especially for brides with longer hair.


In the event that you have long hair and you are making sense of how to manage your hair for the big day, perusing this may very well spare you.

More often than not, Rapunzel-like ladies are frightened of getting excessively hair covering the front of her face under the cloak. Being too wild is likewise one issue, so some resort into getting it trimmed or abbreviated for the event. However, that shouldn't be the situation.

Here are a couple of beyond any doubt methods for wearing your long hair upon the arrival of the wedding without the need of shedding a couple of inches.

1. Lay it down straight


Got lovely, stick straight and impeccably gleaming hair? Display it out and don't let the cover out sparkle it. Get a headband type tiara to help shield the strands from straying into your face as you state "I do."

Ensure that your hair won't choke you as the breeze blows or be snared in the beading subtleties of the outfit. Check if the length of the hair won't barge in the outfit's trimmed or style.

2. One-sided


Breadth the majority of your locks to the other side, contingent upon which side you believe you are most OK with. Just the ladies with long bolts can pull off this look. Extra adornments like a little tiara brush or blossoms can be added to the haircut to give it a little edge and energy.

The hair can be prodded for more volume or twisted at the base for a progressively fantastic look.

3. Sensational twists


Either by a hair curler or a perm treatment, twists bring out sentiment and body to your wedding look. On the off chance that you are going for the twists to be restricted to the lower half of your hair, the headband tiara still works incredibly as an emphasis.

A touch up may be required if the twists are escaping before the supper has even begun.

4. Half up, half down


Half dos are perfect in the event that despite everything you need to have your hair down to light up your face yet don't need your grin to be concealed. Some hairdressers can even make a rose, smaller than expected bun or a complete style with your hair at the back. Concerning adornments, an exquisite yet straightforward tiara would work — not excessively but rather sufficiently only to shimmer.

5. The exemplary bun


Definitely, a major bun over the lady of the hour's hair delegated with a complex wedding tiara is everything necessary. Indeed, long hair might be a waste on the off chance that just kept covered up at the same time, envision the conceivable outcomes all on the grounds that the beauticians inspire a great deal of material to work with.

With the likelihood of interlaces, twirls, circles, prodding and weaving the look of the bun won't be much the same as some other out there. Matched with crowns and tiaras folded over the bun, this great lady of the hour look has been the one you've been longing for since age six.

5 Reasons The Mountains Are Better Than The Beach

Sorry I said it, but it's true


1. There's more to do

at the beach, there are only a few things to do, and they all pretty much come down to just relaxing, and while this can be, and is great, the mountains give you many more options when it comes to daily activities


2. It is not just seasonal

The beach is great... but only in the summer. The mountains are amazing year-round and are not dependent on the the weather. Whether it's mountain biking, hiking, skiing, climbing, kayaking, etc., you can always find something to do, no matter the weather or season.


3. It is an escape from the city

the mountains are less crowded, slower-paced and simply a new scene. You no longer have to worry about beating the lines and finding a good spot on the beach


4. You'll connect more with nature

being in the woods with nature is simply a feeling that can't be replicated anywhere else


5. Still, have beaches

They'll be lake-beaches, but the mountains still have them, giving you, as Miley Cyrus once said, "the best of both worlds".
