Girls' World Forum report
Two Girlguiding members have taken part in the
Girls’ World Forum (GWF) in Chicago, USA.
Amy, 17, and Isabelle, 14, joined 500 young women from 145
countries for the event, from 12-16 July, which was created to
change the world one community at a time.
The girls and their
chaperone, Helen, blogged about their experiences at the GWF,
which was jointly hosted by the World Association of Girl Guides
and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and Girl Scouts of the USA.
'I made friends from all around the world at the Forum and friends
that I will keep for life,' Isabelle wrote.
'Moreover, just being able to walk over to anyone at the Forum
and strike up a conversation was a really big confidence booster
for me because it made me realise that if I can do this with these
girls then surely I can do it with anyone else.
'Finally, the Forum has been so inspiring, I feel like I can
return home and conquer the world. There is no problem or issue too
large that we cannot overcome if we all join forces and work
together,' she concluded.
