“We really wanted to do something for our girls that gave them a space to ask questions and get quality advice,” said Johnson. “And also get a little bit of positivity going.”

Their first series aired Sept. 29th. Johnson says roughly every two weeks, on Tuesday’s at 4:30 P.M., current girl scouts from middle school to high school conduct the interviews.

“Our girl scouts are our leaders. We’re a girl-led organization,” said Johnson. “These young women are coming up with the questions, they’re changing them, they’re doing the introductions with these female leaders.”

Their next guest is Nancy Grayson, President of Horizon Funds, who will be featured on Tuesday, Oct. 13.

Johnson said they are booked through March but if you would like to nominate someone for the series, email gswrc@gswrc.org.
