I just have to report that my daughter has been awarded the Women of Distinction Award from the Girl Scouts for her Gold Project. She did a program on Japanese culture for kids last summer. She is one of 10 girls chosen in the United States. She will get to spend a week in Washington DC in Ocober. During the five-day event, honorees will job shadow and network with female mentors who are at the pinnacles of their professional career. They will also participate in professional development sessions led by experts. Sessions will focus on communications, money management, conflict resolution, and advocacy. Using these skills, honorees will meet with members of Congress and White House officials to discuss their community service projects and the current needs of youth.
That's pretty impressive I think, I couldn't be prouder. Here's to Sarah!
