Jenna Bush Hager speaks to the Girl Scouts of West Central Florida

Everything was about the event was impressive. From the over seven hundred people in attendence, to the four women being honored, it was truly inspiring to see people gathered together to celebrate women who have made a difference in the lives of so many and the young women, to whom the torch is being passed.

Keynote speaker, former first daughter and best-selling author Jenna Bush Hager, shared experiences of her travels in Latin America and Haiti. She spoke of the women she had met and the horrible poverty in which they suffered. Women like Ana, the young woman profiled in her book, Ana’s Story.
