I had the honor to speak yesterday in front of 30 sixteen-year-old girls about my experiences as a wildland firefighter at a Girl Scout Camp Fury event.
This program is awesome! It introduces Girl Scout teens to the world of nontraditional jobs available to them, with hands on experience in structural firefighting and other public service professions.
The girls were interested and engaged while I spoke, and asked great questions. I hope some of them decide to pursue one of these lines of work. We need more women in nontraditional jobs!
