2018 Miss Marianas Celine Cabrera to help revive local Girl Scout program

2018 Miss Marianas Celine Cabrera is helping reactivate the local Girl Scout program so that young girls can learn valuable life and leadership skills.

NMI Girl Scout president Tania P. David said the club has been in hiatus for four years now. It took a break in 2014 due to lack of volunteers.

A former Girl Scout herself, Cabrera said the program taught her lifelong lessons especially about environmental issues.

“I did have an amazing experience with my fellow Girl Scouts. I remember the beach cleanups, and helping out in other community activities. As a young girl, that was a great experience. I would love other young girls to have the same experience that I had,” Cabrera said in an interview.

The program is for girls from six to 12 years old who participate in activities that pertain to science, math, technology, business and economic literacy, and outdoor and environmental awareness.

 “The Girl Scouts is a valuable global program that offers many enjoyable activities and opportunities to our young girls who can share their ideas, learn from each other and experience positive growth,” Cabrera said.

“But what I want to instill in them is the friendship and bonding and learning how to fit in with other girls around them. I want them to have confidence and to let them know that we are here to empower one another as a group of girls helping our community.

“I am very excited to be a part of creating this opportunity, and I’m looking forward to working with our team to ensure not only a successful program, but also one that will continue for a while.”

NMI Girl Scout president Tania P. David said they are “happy to pair up with Miss Marianas and the Stellar Marianas group to help revive our program and provide the necessary support to  our young girls.”

Girl Scouts of the USA, she added, aims to build courage, confidence, and character among girls, and make the world a better place.

“We are encouraging parents and family members to register as adult volunteers to help with troop activities and other events,” David said.

“We will be providing all the necessary information at the upcoming open house and  invite all interested participants to attend.”
