Local Girl Scouts Represent River Valleys at Girls’ World Forum 2012

Two Girl Scout Ambassadors from Rochester represented River Valleys during the Girls’ World Forum 2012 held July 11–15 in Chicago, Illinois. Skky and Artisha met with hundreds of other Girl Scouts and Girl Guides to work on solutions for global issues such as gender equality, environmental sustainability and poverty reduction. The goal of the event was to create sustainable action plans each girl can implement in their hometowns and initiate positive change.

The forum offered the chance for Skky and Artisha to meet other girls from around the world while working on common goals shared by each country represented. The girls spent their days in workshops, getting to know each other and exploring Chicago.

A trip to remember, Skky says that her favorite event was the international night when girls wore traditional dress from their countries.
