Sophie is a selfless, bright young lady a pleasure to have in the unit. A true sister to all Guides
"Sophie has shown that she is a friend and sister to all Guides. She has been a Buddy to a fellow member of the unit who has hearing loss. Taking great care to ensure her peer understands instructions etc, while on activities such as sailing, climbing, abseiling, driving and gliding.
Sophie also put herself forward to volunteer as a buddy for a young girl with Cerebral Palsy. A local female Cub wanted to go up to Scouts but the group did not have a female leader. The female Cub required help with all of her mobility needs.
Sophie went camping , on hikes (pushing a Wheelchair ) and even supported her buddy in the group pantomime .
Within the unit Sophie is a great role model, she encourages the younger girls in all aspects of
Our Guiding. And at present is motivating one of her peers to engage in the international selection process.
Sophie, was able to take part in an international Guiding trip to Peru and was grateful when other members of the unit took part in her fund raising activities, never taking them for granted.
I also understand that Sophie , while on her international selection and subsequently on her trip she encouraged others to full potential."
