Kristin LaRose (Youth)
My name is Kristen Larose and I’m 15 years old. I’m a 4th year scout with the 63rd Windsor scout troop. I’ve been in scouting for a total of 7 years and I love it. I started my scouting journey as a brownie then moved up to girl guides. As I got older I switched over and joined cubs scouts for a year and then advanced to scouts. During my second year in scouts with the old program, I became an APL (Assistant patrol leader). In my third year of scouts with the Canadian path, I was the troop scout, and this year I’m a troop scout again as well as part of the troop leadership team. I would be a good CVR because I have experience with leadership and making decisions for others.
Throughout my scouting years, I’ve learned many things about survival and myself, attended many challenge camps and 3 big Jamborees: CCJ’16, CJ’17, and WSJ’19, and almost completed all the requirements for my chief scout award. At WSJ’19 I met scouts from all over the world and learned a little bit about different ways of scouting that we could incorporate into Scouts Canada. This way, I could try to help make Scouts Canada improve into a more divergent scouting association.
I am a highly motivated and active scout through scouting and the community, I go to every camp that I can attend including IFC, and participate in the local scout trucks competition every year. I take as much pride in my work as I do with my uniform and I am not afraid to voice my own opinion or find solutions for any problems. As the scout promise states, I will always do my best, help other people at all times, and carry out the spirit of the scout law.
Being a girl in scouts, I would be a great role model for younger girls in scouting and show them that girls belong in scouts and that anything is achievable. As a participant in the scouting program, I want to give it my all for Scouts Canada so that young scouts at all levels can have adventures and scouting memories as good as my own. I am very proud of all my accomplishments with scouting and I'll be thankful if you decide to give me this amazing opportunity.
