"Ever since I was a kid, super masaya ako at naging part ako ng Girl Scouts. Kasi aside from the camping, I know yung mga pinaglalaban ng Girl Scout."
(Ever since I was a kid, I was very happy when I became part of the Girl Scouts. Because aside from the camping, I know what the Girl Scout fights for.)
"Every time I see a Girl Scout, nirerespect ko yung taong iyon (I respect that person) and now, I'm officially part of it and I'm very excited to work with this – my new family to promote different types of values to the youth, to the kids. And I'm very grateful that they considered me to be your newest ambassadress and hopefully, I will fulfill all your expectations," she said.
She also encouraged all the Girl Scouts to continue to read, one of the programs the organization pushes for. – Rappler.com
