Hola! I am Rachel and I will be stepping in last minute to fill the role of written documentor for the GOLD Mexico 2018 team.
I have been a member of Girlguiding since the age of five as a Rainbow, Brownie, Guide and Ranger. I moved to Shropshire and became a guide leader just over two years ago. I love volunteering with Girlguiding, it is amazing how many opportunities for girls and women Girlguiding offers. As a Guide I travelled to the Czech Republic, France and Austria with my unit and these trips are some of my favourite Girlguiding memories. Last year I travelled to the Maldives with GOLD team Maldives 2017 and found the project very rewarding. I am looking forward to once again travelling with Girlguiding, learning about and working with Guias de Mexico.
I currently work as process engineer for an aluminium company, as part of my job I visit local schools promoting the studying of STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) subjects especially for girls. Outside of work I love active pursuits, craft and I love to travel.
I am excited to represent Girlguiding UK and work with Guias de Mexico. I look forward to spending more time with the GOLD Mexico 2018 team and can’t wait to get out to country to start our project!
Hasta luego, Rachel
