Girl Scouts has long been committed to challenging stereotypes and providing girls of all ages with interactive and engaging programs that increase their interest in science, technology, engineering, math, and the Arts.

In fact, the 2017 Girl Scout Impact Study found that Girl Scouts are more likely than non–Girl Scouts to design video games, build robots, and provide a supportive all-girl environment that fosters social, emotional, and leadership development.

In Honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Girl Scouts of the USA rolled out a Spanish version of its “Watch Me Shine” anthem.

“Me Verás Brillar,” is the Spanish version of its “Watch Me Shine” anthem, which the organization released last year.

The new song is distributed in conjunction with National Hispanic Heritage Month and emphasizes the importance of girls taking the lead in their communities.

The original anthem was translated into Spanish by well-known producer José Luis Pagán (Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez) and sung by recording artist Alyssa Micaela.

The English version of the song written by two-time Grammy winner Liz Rose (Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town) and Emily Shackelton (Reba McEntire, David Cook, Cassadee Pope), has gone global since its release.

In line with the Girl Scout tradition of sharing songs around a campfire, embracing music can be a wonderful way to motivate and engage girls.

“We believe that music is a powerful tool in inspiring this generation,” said Mishka Pitter-Armand, vice president of brand marketing at GSUSA. “We have a large Hispanic base at Girl Scouts, so it’s important to bring this song to girls in Spanish.”

“Me Verás Brillar,” produced by Breakthrough Music, is available for purchase from iTunes, Amazon Music, and other major online retailers.
