Spreading the Cookie Message

Girl Scout Cadette Alexis has been busy helping get the word out that it’s Girl Scout Cookie season! She recently visited radio station Hot 100 and was interviewed about being a cookie entrepreneur and Girl Scout.

Being a Girl Scout since joining as a Daisy, she’s had plenty of experience being part of the nation’s largest financial literacy program for girls – the Girl Scout Cookie Program! Because Alexis is so busy with sports and other extracurricular activities, she’s chosen to be a Juliette, participating as an individual girl member. Alexis says what she loves most in Girl Scouts is learning new skills, helping others and earning badges.

Three years ago, as a Girl Scout Junior, she earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award. For her project, she chose to be active and serve as a speaker for local organizations that focus on supporting cancer patients and cancer research. She chose this following the loss of her sister, Giovanna, who died from cancer. Alexis was able to participate in a special Girl Scout Daisy pining for her sister just few months before Giovanna passed.

Alexis is now hoping to earn her Girl Scout Silver Award. Her cookie goal this year is 500 boxes – a 200 increase over last year.
