Testimony from a Distinguished Women’s Shadow Girl

In the Spring of 2013 Girl Scout Likhitha was chosen as one of five girls who would shadow a Distinguished Women’s Award Honoree. After the initial shadow day and the Distinguished Women’s Award Reception, Likhitha and Michelle keep in touch and share a unique bond. Read below as Likhitha describes this special bond.

A couple months ago, I could have never imagined to have this kind of relationship, but it has become very evident that the paradigm of the program not only allows for, but also encourages an ongoing connection. Since our relationship has surpassed the professional setting in which it commenced, a true friendship has formed, which was completely unexpected for me going into this process. To say the least, I am very excited to see how this unique relationship turns out in years to come.”
