We wanted to be normal college students, but we quickly realized the amazing privilege of living history. We've come to see the platform we resisted at first as an opportunity because we believe the more we know about the plight of people around the world the more likely we are to make a difference.”
Jenna Bush Hager,
Bush is the CEO and co-founder of the nonprofit Global Health Corps, which places young people in health fields to serve in communities around the world that don't have access to quality medical care. She has traveled extensively in Africa and her organization serves overseas and in the United States. She also is a member of UNICEF's Next Generation Steering Committee, among other nonprofit boards.
At the luncheon, the two applauded the Girl Scouts' emphasis on training leaders for a life of service. Bush noted that of 11 Global Health Corps employees, 10 are women, and seven of them once served as Girl Scouts.
“No matter where you are in life, your talents can make a difference,” Bush told the crowd.
