Her Story - Jania Johnson
Jania is ten years old and participates in Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada’s Outreach Drop In Center Program. As a baby, Jania was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia, a disease that often leaves her very tired and in pain. And still, Jania dreams of becoming a doctor when she grows up - she wants to help others that suffer from her disease.
At the Girl Scout drop in center, Jania participates in Girl Scout Healthy Living and STEM programs. This past year, Jania and her friends built and programmed Lego Robots and participated in a local LEGO FIRST competition. They also kept silk worms at their center and learned how silk came from the silk worma and eventually became a shirt. Jania may not realize it, but the programs she participates in at Girl Scout drop in centers are providing her the building blocks to realizing her dream of becoming a doctor. Jania just thinks its tons of fun!
