Miranda created Shadybrook Village Game Room in order to provide a safe place with healthy activities for youth and families in her community. She noticed an increase of troubled situations and there was a lack of positive, family entertainment in her neighborhood. She designed and coordinated a game room in her community, which offers a safe place for teens and youth to have fun, also focusing on family game nights bringing families and the community together.
Miranda said, “This project has given me confidence and has greatly impacted my community. There is now a safe and entertaining place people can enjoy in my neighborhood which instills community and family bonding.”
“We celebrate the Gold Award recipients for implementing community action projects that will serve those in need for years to come. These young women exemplify the Girl Scout motto of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place,” said Sue Stewart, Chief Executive Officer of Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida, Inc.
The Girl Scout Gold Award is so prestigious that some universities and colleges offer scholarships unique to Gold Award recipients, and girls who enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces may receive advanced rank in recognition of their achievements. Congratulations Miranda!
