Eagle Spotlight: Alexandra Rees

Meet Alexandra, one of 10 young women in Pacific Skyline Council’s inaugural class of female Eagle Scouts. Allie earned her Eagle at age 17 from Troop 27 in San Mateo and plans to attend College of San Mateo studying something in the field of science.

While earning the rank of Eagle, I got the chance to take what I learned and what I was learning and pass it on to other Scouts, younger and older. Through this I learned valuable leadership skills that will not only help me throughout the rest of my Scouting life but the rest of my life in general.

Plans beyond high school

My plan after high school is to attend College of San Mateo for two years and earn my AS. In relation to what I want to major in, I know I want to go into the sciences, but other than that, I don’t have a solid answer to that yet.

Are there any Scouting or non-Scouting awards or recognitions you would like to mention?

Discovery in Venture Crew, 50-Miler Award, Mile Swim.

Tell us a little bit about you . . .

I am someone who loves the outdoors and loves to be around others. I am caring towards others and love to learn new things.

When and where did you earn your Eagle Scout rank?

I earned my Eagle Scout rank on February 2nd, 2021 from the comfort of my own room. My board of review was on Zoom.

What did you do for your Eagle Project?

My project was to build two benches and two bow stands for Kings Mountain Archers archery range.Did you have a favorite merit badge(s)? Did any merit badge(s) lead to a hobby or profession?

My favorite merit badge to earn was a tie between Whitewater and Wilderness Survival. The requirements were all completed through my Venture crew. We took the requirements and dove deeper into them trying to get as much out of it as we could. I learned so much from them and they were both fun to earn.

What does being an Eagle Scout mean to you?

Being an Eagle Scout for me means joining hundreds of other men and women all over who also worked hard to get the rank. It also shows that if I want something bad enough, all I have to do is work towards it

What is the greatest personal asset you developed while earning your Eagle Scout rank, or from being an Eagle in the greater community? How has this asset contributed towards your personal fulfillment and success in your personal or professional life?

While earning the rank of Eagle, I got the chance to take what I learned and what I was learning and pass it on to other Scouts, younger and older. Through this I learned valuable leadership skills that will not only help me throughout the rest of my Scouting life but the rest of my life in general.

Do you have any advice for your fellow Eagles, or for those working towards becoming an Eagle? Or is there common advice that you think should be ignored?

My advice would be to not give up. Eagle is a hard thing to earn. It gets really stressful at times and you will think “I can’t do this,” but you can. Push forward. It will be worth it in the end.

If you could add a thirteenth point to the Scout Law, what would it be?

Hungry. The 13th point of the Scout Law is and always will be Hungry. Or Empathetic.
