Thank you for taking the time to read my GOFundMe page and considering my sponsorship request. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Layilah Nasser, I am currently a first year student at Spelman College. Some of my achievements include winning the photogenic award at Miss Georgia Teen USA pageant 2014, Life-long Girl Scout member and serving as a Public Relations Intern for Girl Scout of the nations capital. I have also served as a Girl Scout for 13 years. As a first grader, I was introduced to this wonderful organization. Their mission is predicated upon helping girls acquire the endurance, disposition, confidence to take action. The Miss Teen America Scholarship program celebrates community service, healthy living and accomplishments of young women. The competition will be held on August 1-2 at the Sandler Center in VA Beach. If I do become Miss Teen America, I will receive a scholarship to help me continue my education and the opportunity to use this title spread more awareness for Girl Scouts of America. The Sponsorship fee is 1100, you can contribute as much as possible. The sponsorship fee helps to pay for administrative expenses, advertising, lodging and other pageant expenses. I sincerely hope you will celebrate with me! www.missteenamerica.com
We began our day with volunteering for the MLK 5K race! After the race we went to visit the MLK national historic site in Downtown Atlanta. What a great day of service!
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, This is social issue that is very important to me. After many years ,I have finally found the courage to Speak up and Speak out about my domestic violence experience, I realized that I was blaming myself which allowed me to accept being mistreated. This whole experience lead me to my career path, I would like to purse a career in Clinical Forensic Psychology. I plan to work with a variety of aspects of the justice systems, working with inmates to understand the thought process before committed crimes like domestic violence, murder and rape specifically. I believe in resilience and after this experience I have gained a strong sense in self and created a long term goal.
Domestic Violence; It’s EVERYBODY’S Business.
Please join us in supporting Domestic Violence Awareness Month
I am thrilled to begin my journey with the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta!
Today, I had the opportunity to represent Girl Scouts as I participated in a panel with members from Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy. We discussed the Forever Green program and sustainability! The Innovation Center was founded by dairy pro…ducers in 2008 as a way to help the dairy industry work together on issues and opportunities that affect the entire industry, but are too big for any one company or segment of the supply chain to tackle alone. It represents leading dairy producer and processor organizations who are working together pre-competitively to develop shared strategies and insights that can help the entire dairy industry.
On behalf of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the Office of Public Engagement, I was invited to represent Girl Scouts at the State of Science Technology, Engineering and Math Address, or “SoSTEM.” The event featur…ed Dr. John P. Holdren, Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy;Todd Park, US Chief Technology Officer;Lori Garver, Deputy Administrator of NASA; State of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Address
I had the honor and privilege of becoming an intern for the Public Relations Department. I have been a Girl Scout since the first grade and I always had a dream of either becoming the CEO of Girl Scouts (which of course can still happen) or becoming a member of the office!
This has been an amazing hands-on learning experience. I couldn’t be anymore thankful to have Nancy Wood as supervisor as well as Breauna and Deborah as co-workers! I had the opportunity to run the art contest and the cookie recipe contest, which was a really fun but stressful experience. We had SO many entries, but it really helped me develop my management and organizational skills. I also had the chance to record and take part in a variety of events. Running the social networks were awesome because I was able to connect with people from all around council! This experience helped me see the behind the scenes action at the office. It really makes you appreciate all the hard work and effort everyone in the office puts in to making events, shows, and meetings successful.
The one thing I love the most is being able to see the passion each department truly has for this organization. I remember coming in my first day and seeing Lidia, with a big bright smile on her face. So I asked her, “why are you so happy?” She replied “I just love my job, I love waking up every morning to come here.” I will never forget those words because they are just so inspiring to me. I think that it’s always the little things that can make some of the biggest impacts. My Girl Scout experience in general has made such a huge impact on my life, from learning how to make s’mores to traveling to the White House to ask the Deputy Administrator of NASA about STEM. The skills and the experiences have molded me into an outgoing, hardworking and determined young woman. I am proud to say that I am a Girl Scout.
witnessed the crowning of the NEW MISS MARYLAND TEEN USA Hannah Brewer! Congrats your going to have an AMAZING year!
