Never underestimate the importance of being part of something bigger than yourself. Steph and I were each part of Girl Scouts, but Steph took it much farther than most—all the way to the end of high school, in fact! Steph sold cookies and earned badges along the way but as a senior in high school she earned the prestigious Gold Award. In this episode, Steph and I have an honest conversation about how the things we experience in high school can shape us for the rest of our lives.
