Why you ask?
Because she was, and remains, a good role model for young girls. Velma feared nothing. She asked questions first, rushed into the room with the ghost first and usually decoded the mystery. She was the driving force behind the team of mystery solving teens, and the most under appreciated. This is my chance to give Velma a great big and well-deserved shout out. For being the brainy one and proud of it. Many of us can relate.
