A chilly evening on the 14 November. After navigating our way from train to tube, to tentatively following Google Maps towards the mysterious Museum of London, we arrived at some steps leading down to a funky room, with the signs for ‘Girlguiding LaSER Ambassadors Drinks Reception’ pointing us in the right direction.
Name-tags donned, myself and Hattie, my fellow Leader-in-Training, nabbed a few canapes and joined our county commissioner, Mary, in scanning the room for familiar faces. I was nervous about my role as interviewer, so I was extremely glad when Sally, our Chief Commissioner, offered to find someone to brief me. Sally found Tilly, who found Sally(a different one!), who found Ilona and Diane, the first trio of ambassadors to be interviewed. In what seemed like no time at all, I was standing in front of a gathering of friendly faces, asking our three ambassadors: “So, could you tell us a bit about your background, and who you are?”
