Interview with Katie Riley (Girl Scout Unit 31-6)

By: Jessica Theis, Girl Scout

I had the chance to speak with Katie Riley, a representative from an amazing organization known as ‘She’s the First.’

Katie officially joined the She’s the First (STF) staff in 2013, but before than she was STF’s very first intern. She manages their growing network of campus chapters, mentors, alumni, teachers, and interns, along with producing the annual #STFSummit.

She’s the First is an organization that provides girls with scholarships. They serve 11 different countries, and have counselors in tons of high schools across the country.

Kaite says the most exciting aspect of her job is “working with young women and young men who want to make education and equality possible.”

Katie says she would tell girls around the world to “Defy expectations. Whatever you want to do, you can do. And you don’t need to do what everybody expects of you.”

All in all, it was a great night; an event worth going to.
