What happens on an aMUSE Journey ? Here is a sneak peak at a few things we do.

Who am I? Who would I like to be? Imagine the possibilities !
After brainstorming about the many roles women can have, Juniors make paper dolls that represent roles they have now as well as roles they might like to try in the future.
Give a Picture a New Story
Many of the aMUSE Journey activities are designed to build the girls' storytelling skills. The Give Picture a New Story activity asks the girls to write a story from another person's perspective. This is difficult for many girls to do. This story was the best example I've seen. It was written about a family Christmas card photo from the experience of the scout's older brother. As you read it, put a whine in your voice as the Girl Scout did when she shared it with the group.
Oh, It was just another day, then BOOM! Mom wants to take pictures for Christmas cards. I already look handsome in every picture. Oh, great, here comes my annoying little sister Nicole. She asks How do I look? I said OK, but deep down inside I didn’t care. Then mom told me where we were going to take pictures. I started groaning silently, I would rather stay home and play video games. When we were taking pictures, I had to pose good. I knew I was posing better than everyone. Then here came my Aunt Jenny to take the picture. I was like, just be done already. She took like a hundred pictures, but my electronics were waiting in the car. That was my day to take Christmas pictures.
