When people think of comic conventions, the thought is usually of comics, creators, and cosplayers. At Long Beach, the Girl Scouts in the Los Angeles area have been discovering more encouragement through events generated just for them. There are workshops and activities for the different age groups and in a badge receiving ceremony, the girls got a special treat as Chloe Bennet (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) was on on hand to deliver the badges and offer some words of encouragement.
The ceremony was for offered to over one hundred girls. The badges handed out included a Novelist Badge where the girls took part in writing activities and a Comic Artist Badge where storytelling through art was the focus. The main message is for the girls to follow their dreams and lots of opportunities are offered. As the girls and Chloe took the stage before the ceremony to pose for press and family, Bennet suggested they do silly faces.
Someone suggested they all do the “Supergirl pose” but Chloe joked, “That’s DC [Comics]. I won’t do that.” She the suggested they do the “Quake pose” based on her character in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The girls then lined up to receive their badges. Chloe told the first few girls dressed as DC Comics characters, she’d “forgive them” for the outfits. Bennet also took the time to ask each girl their name and proceeded to high five each one when they received their badge. Before the closing of the ceremony, Chloe addressed the girls, again delivering the message of following their dreams.
To be honest, experiencing all of this at a comic convention was a little unexpected. We’re used to seeing comic creators and Hollywood actors discuss their projects and share news on what’s coming up. It was a nice and refreshing change to see these young girls take pride in their accomplishment and be encourage to continue what their doing. Part of the Girl Scouts motto is, “Invest in girls. Change the world.” The energy in the room was very positive and uplifting.
