Girl Scouts Attend Latina Conference

Hundreds of Girl Scouts from all over the world are coming to Savannah. More than 350 girls from Panama, Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, and 30 states right in the US are in town for the National Latina Conference. They will be at Savannah State University through the weekend, learning about the Girl Scouts, diversity and opportunities for young women around the world.

They're already excited about the new friends they're meeting.

"I met some girls from Guatemala already," said said Kimberly Linzan from Hinesville. "They're coming from all over the place."

"The people I have met here so far are great," said Kristel Garcia from Charlotte, North Carolina. "They're really nice to people and I'm really happy to be here."

And Leiri Mercado, from the Dominican Republic, told us, "They've been great. They really helped me to learn about what I have to do and where I have to go."

The conference started today. The girls will be in Savannah through Saturday.
