Welcome to the Sensory Strides podcast. Observations of the world through activity, reading, listening, and everything else.
I have felt most like myself in the past week or so than I have in a long time. I had two great conversations with Gold Award Girl Scouts for my other show. (Ep 64) One had such high energy and everything related to her project involved bright colors. It was just so fun! (Ep 65) The other was with a young women I have been following for a couple of years. Her focus is STEM diversity and she is always involved in some activity related to STEM. Her Instagram makes me tired just looking at it.
I even had a last minute project that I successfully completed. Girl Scouts has implemented a scholarship program for Gold Award Girl Scouts and a couple of days before it kicked off I received the details on which girls were eligible and we had four (out of our fourteen) that needed work in order to make sure they were eligible. Two were easy because the system dates just needed to be corrected, but the other two required the girls to submit both their proposal and final report via the Go Gold electronic system. Getting this report through the electronic system involved four different people and 8 steps. Luckily we were all able to work together and get the Girl Scouts successfully set up. The timing also worked well because the application process opened last week with the applications due this week and we have a already scheduled Highest Awards Q&A session scheduled. We are pivoting and making that session a scholarship FAQ session for the girls.
Then, I also received an email that a conference I have been very excited about attending has selected me to be a speaker on a panel. I was already expecting this conference to be a highlight of my year and now that I will be involved even more my excitement has skyrocketed. I can’t share much about this yet, but I will be soon because it is a group I am already passionate about.
Thanks for joining me. Be sure to check our show notes for links to inspiration items and … don't forget to stop and smell the roses.
