Girl Guides of Canada Ontario Council Girl Forum member MaddieMadeline F.
Hi, my name is Madeline! I am 15 years old and from Brampton. I am going into my 6th year of Guiding and my first year of Youth Forum, which I’m very excited about! Along with being in Rangers, I love being a Girl Assistant to a Spark and Brownie unit in my community and adventuring with my Trex unit. My favourite part about Guiding is the sisterhood. I have made such strong bonds with all the girls I've met here. Of course, I also love camping and everything to do with the outdoors. Outside of Guiding, I enjoy swimming, drama, and playing with my cats. I can’t wait to see what’s to come this year!

This is my power pose!! Hey, My name is Rachel. I am super excited to be part of Youth Forum this year!! I am from Waterloo (community 8). I am a third-year Ranger and I have been involved in Guiding since Sparks, for a total of 13 years! I am a Girl Assistant for a Brownie unit, who I love. I cannot wait until I’m a Guider!!! I am an AVID Badge and crest collector ... I always have swaps and love expanding my blanket! I am super into history and exploring the heritage of Girl Guides. I am super excited for my international trip this summer to England and Charnwood (international Scout camp)! Outside of Guiding, I am a lifeguard and enjoy being in the outdoors. I consider myself a camping guru and one with nature. I can lead campfire off the top of my head! #crocs for life! Ever since I did an exchange to Japan in July 2017, I’ve had the travel switch flipped on. I can’t wait to explore this world. I hope to study aviation or outdoor recreation in the future. I will always carry the guiding spirit with me wherever I go, and I hope that, with Youth Forum, I can be an activist for all girls in guiding by making sure their opinions are heard.
