Queens Girl Scouts Honored At Cooper Union

•    Virginia Lee, Troop 4382, Middle Village. Virginia cleaned the trail markers at Alley Pond Park and informed her peers about the Leave-No-Trace model and encouraged them to go camping or hiking. Inspired by her love of the outdoors and her desire to encourage people to go out and reduce their impact on the environment, she decided to educate and involve her community.
    •    Irene Lee, 4382, Fresh Meadows. Irene created an artistic workbook for kids in elementary school that focused on clean air and improving energy usage. Inspired by curiosity around where the power in technological devices came from, she decided to share that knowledge with those younger than her.
    •    Ranice Chong, 4382, Queens Village. Ranice held a book drive to create a library at St. Mary’s Hospital for Children. Inspired by her love of reading and her desire to help children, she decided to give the gift of reading to those in need.
    •    Rachel Shen, 4382, Oakland Gardens. Rachel collected lap robes for senior centers, children’s hospitals, and Hurricane Sandy victims. Inspired initially by wounded veterans’ stories, she decided that through giving a personalized handmade gift to those in need, she could bring a smile to those who were less fortunate.
    •    Jasmine Wu, 4569, Oakland Gardens. Jasmine crocheted caps for premature babies born at local hospitals. Inspired by the 13% of babies born premature in the United States every year, and her desire to give families a token of hope that their children will survive and thrive, Jasmine combined her love of crocheting with her belief in the cause.
