Awards 

Girl Scout Gold Award, Award

The completion of the Gold Award for the girl scouts is the highest award that a girl scout can receive. The Gold Award is designed to challenge girls to be leaders in their local communities and serve for a greater purpose. For my Gold Award I designed a program for the local retirement home called "iUnderstand iPads." In this program I hosted a 10-week class for interested members of the community who wanted to learn how to use their iPads. I came up with lesson plans and homework assignments so that the senior citizens would get the most out of their class experience.
