Troop 4869 recently completed their MEdia Journey that challenged them to look for the ME in media and learn how they can shape media—for themselves, their community and the world. For their journey the Girl Scouts set out to define what it means to be a real girl. Check out what they came up with in the video below!
Stories are told everywhere and in all kinds of formats – in movies by big Hollywood studios, online by bloggers and through social networks; through the clothes chosen by stylists for a fashion spread in a magazine and through the photos chosen by a newspaper editor. MEdia helps girls think about who is responsible for telling all the stories they see around them and how they can use their story to help “re-make” the forms of media they see around them.
