Leadership Project Helps Others Overcome Insecurity

For her Gold Award Project, Jaime planned and led a full day camp helping girls in 6th through 12th grades deal with insecurities and self esteem. Jamie chose this project because she found herself challenged with shyness and insecurity. An educational discussion along with karaoke and crafts provided a day where girls could realize that they can overcome shyness and insecurity. The karaoke songs had a theme of being strong and independent. Jaime states, “The excitement of the girls and their letting go and forgetting their own insecurities for the night was the ending of a great day.” Jaime, a graduate of West Point High School, is the daughter of Keith and Patricia of Vinemont and is a freshman at Wallace State Community College.
