Girl Scout Junior, Jaylah is pictured with Leecia Eve, attorney and former Democratic candidate for Attorney General of New York.
As a Girl Scout Junior, Jaylah saw an issue in her community and decided to speak up and take action. Jaylah courageously spoke out at a community meeting, saying “We don’t want people building businesses in our neighborhood that don’t care about what’s good for us.” Her determination continued when she met with elected officials to get their signatures for a petition to shut down what would become the second liquor store in her community. Her dedication paid off – soon after the liquor license was denied and there were no plans to move forward with that type of establishment.
