Convoy teen Mika Browne has been honoured with the highest award of the Irish Girl Guides.
Mika Browne, a member of Convoy Girl Guides, received the Trailblazer National Guide Award – Irish Girl Guides’ highest award – at a special ceremony in Croke Park recently.
Mika was one of 137 Girl Guides, aged 14-15, who travelled from all corners of the country to receive the award and, with their families, celebrated reaching the pinnacle of Guiding.
Each girl received a Trail Blazer gold pin from Irish Girl Guides (IGG) President Maureen Murphy and a National Guide Award certificate from IGG Assistant Chief Commissioner Áine Divilly.
Congratulating the recipients, IGG President Maureen Murphy said: “You have been committed and worked hard to gain the Award and gained valuable life-skills in the process. Everyone has put her own stamp on the challenges, which is inspiring. Everyone here has the skills to make a positive contribution to her community and society going forward.”
Irish Girl Guides welcomes new members from age 5+ and volunteer leaders from age 18+. Previous experience of Guiding is not necessary. To find out more, see www.irishgirlguides.ie.
