Girl Scouts of Hawaiʻi recently held its Barbie – Be Anything, Do Everything  
Program for Daisies and Brownies. The program encourages girls to explore a variety of career fields which they otherwise might not have been exposed. Just as Barbie can “try on” different jobs, so too did the Girl Scouts, as they learned more about computer programming, nursing, gardening and aviation.

Through the Barbie – Be Anything, Do Everything Program, scouts learned about these four fields from professionals, and then applied their newfound knowledge to exercises in those careers. Their “practice” jobs included designing and coding their own story on the computer, wrapping ankles with ace bandages, trying on a beekeeper’s outfit, and experimenting with a flight simulator program. Through first-hand exposure to these creative career fields, the scouts learned that they truly can be anything, and do everything they can imagine!

Gold Award Recipient Cori Sutton Earns JABSOM Scholarship
From Gold Award-winning Girl Scout to future physician, Cori Sutton of Troop 415 has received a golden opportunity: a four-year full tuition scholarship to the John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM). She is just one of seven recipients of the Doctor of Medicine Early Acceptance Program, and credits the Girl Scouts of Hawaiʻi as key to her success.
For her Gold Award Project, Cori designed an innovative presentation for the Honolulu Zoo entitled “Save the Orangutans: If the Girl Scouts Can Do It, So Can You,” educating visitors about the deforestation caused by palm oil production. She joins the ranks of only six percent of eligible girls nationwide who have earned the prestigious Gold Award. Girl Scouts fostered Cori’s love for community service, and it has played an important role in helping her pursue her dream career as a doctor.
Congratulations to Cori Sutton! We know you will achieve great things in your future!
