Cherry Hill, New Jersey (May 25, 2023) - Girl Scouts from Central and Southern New Jersey recently had the amazing opportunity to attend an inspiring event where they met two-time World Cup winner, two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, and two-time FIFA Player of the Year, Carlie Lloyd. At the event, Carlie shared her story and encouraged the crowd to use the guidance that they are given, combined with their own intuition, to overcome life's challenges. She also emphasized that feeling motivated is more important than any other attribute when it comes to success and cautioned against competing with others -- it's better to compete against your own goals instead. Lastly, she reminded everyone in attendance to make sure that they take time for themselves and feed their soul along the way.

At the event, Girl Scout Ava C from Florence Township, and her Mom, Linda, had the pleasure of meeting Carlie. Ava shared that she appreciated Carlie's openness about experiencing personal struggles and how she encouraged listeners to push through tough times instead of dwelling on negativity. Linda understands the value of bringing young girls in contact with inspiring, accomplished women.  The Girl Scouts of Central and Southern New Jersey are happy that they could help make this happen.
