  • Everything I love and everything I have done stems back to my experiences in Guiding, and for that I will be forever grateful.

    Alissa, Ranger

  • Personally I have always been self-conscious about my looks, my weight and who I am as a person. Girl Guides gave me a family that wasn't judgmental and taught me to love who I am, while constantly striving for my goals and dreams.

    Cassandra, Ranger

  • Guiding has taught me so much more than camping and crafts – it has given me the confidence and initiative to empower myself and those around me.

    Holly, girl Member

  • The personal growth that I have accomplished with the help and support of the Girl Guiding community has been enormous and has shaped the woman that I am today. I used to be very shy and sharing my opinion in public was a struggle. Girl Guides gave me a safe environment where I could start to express myself and become comfortable with who I am and that confidence slowly transpired to other aspects of my life.

    Kshamina, girl member

  • Guiding has made me a more confident, independent, kind, thoughtful, fearless, self-assured and beautiful individual. I am so happy with who I am, and I give all the credit to Guiding.

    Lauren, girl member

  • The Girl Guides of Canada organization has taught me endless lessons in life – confidence, being true to yourself, taking opportunities, being a role model and following your dreams.

    Samantha, girl member
