There’s no hood like sisterhood.
For more than 100 years, the Girl Scouts have been admired for their core attributes: camping, crafts, and cookies. The foundation of this life-changing organization has united women of all ages through its cherished traditions.
Every three years, Girl Scouts gather at the National Council Session and Convention to reinvigorate their movement, celebrate their accomplishments, and chart their future. On October 16-19, the 2014 National Council Session / 53rd Convention took place in Salt Lake City, Utah, and kept its promise to honor their roots and, at the same time, propel their Movement forward into the next 100 years of leadership for girls and young women.
On Thursday, October 16, PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT founder Aeshia DeVore Branch and Samantha Jo Alonso flew to Salt Lake to meet a courageous and confident group of Girl Scouts who were filled with excitement and absence of fear as they participated in a local FOX news segment and workout.
Aeshia and The Hollywood Trainer Jeanette Jenkins joined forces again on Saturday to instruct an incredible dance and strength training workout amongst a convention hall packed with more than 6,500 scouts, volunteers, staff members, the infamous Harlem Globetrotters (including Joyce “Sweet J” Ekworomadu and Tammy Brawner), and others.
Guests quickly joined in the fun by busting a move or capturing the sweat session on their smartphones. The workout, which incorporated a variety of dance moves and sports assimilation, such as basketball dunks and volleyball spikes, ended in a health and nutrition quiz that helped Girl Scout members score free PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT merchandise. As Girl Scout alum, Aeshia and Jeanette felt right at home amongst the young girls looking for motivation mixed with a great time.
In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. We were so proud to contribute to that.
