"I didn’t have a lot of opportunity growing up in a low-income area of New Orleans. My grandmother funded my first year of Girl Scouts, through cookie sales I was able to continue and I did several years of camp through camperships. Girl Scouts gave me the confidence to enlist and serve in the Coast Guard for fifteen years, earn my degree and essentially claw my way out of poverty. I would not have been able to do that if Girl Scouts wasn’t in my life. I want to make sure all our girls have these opportunities."
—Charissa Ramp, Juliette Gordon Low Society Member
