Elisa is one of several Girl Guides / Scouts I met up with to share thier jumping joy. What an incredible pleasure to meet these girls. They are empowered, capable, confident and considerate. Whenever I get side tracked with disturbing world news, I meet kids like ELisa and her Guides group, and I instantly have my faith in humanity restored.
