Sitting on the Council has given me so many opportunities

Sitting on the Council has given Alex loads of other opportunities

At the Council induction meeting I kept pinching myself - I had actually spoken to the Chief Guide!

For me, getting involved in one guiding activity catapulted me into another. For example, I attended the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan in 2012. I've since gone on to join a Girlguiding Ulster PR and communication forum and now sit on the Girlguiding's Council.

I put forward ideas from Young Ulster

At the induction meeting I had to keep pinching myself as I'd actually spoken to the Chief Guide! At Council I want to put forward the ideas of Young Ulster Members, and hope to promote Girlguiding through social media.

Why social media is important

Social media has the power to communicate with everyone, regardless of race, religion or background, and show what Girlguiding can do for every girl.
