Congratulations to Sylvia M. of Troop 802 in Fort Myers! She is the 2015 Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida, Inc., TOP Girl Scout Cookie Entrepreneur. Sylvia sold 4,072 boxes of cookies. Sylvia is a 4th grader at Bonita Springs Preparatory Academy and Fitness Academy and also participates in Tae Kwon Do, soccer, tennis, basketball, drill team and gymnastics to name a few. She has been a Girl Scout for two years and she had this goal to become top cookie achiever since last year.
She learned that if you set a goal and really try, you’ll make it. Sylvia said, “Girl Scouts has taught me to be a unique person in a good way.”
Her troop is planning to go to Orlando on an overnight to Wet and Wild. Her favorite personal reward that she will receive is a spa day with Sue Stewart, CEO of Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida, Inc.
Sylvia spent weekends at cookie booths from 10am-8pm and states that, “Girl Scout Cookies were my sleep.” She had to endure many types of weather: rain, cold, really hot, sunny. What helped her the most was a poster board progress chart which showed her customers how much more she had to sell.
Congratulations to Sylvia! She will share more about her success at the 2015 Young Women of Distinction Ceremony on May 17th in Punta Gorda. Details Here>>
