A Girl Scout’s sweet success

Lexi Daher, 10, on selling cookies, fifth-grade life, and beyond

> You sold more cookies last year than any Girl Scout in Eastern Massachusetts – 2,400 boxes, to be exact. How? Well, it took a lot of time and effort. It’s just patience, I guess.

> Where do you sell the cookies? I would go to some houses because they’re my best friends’, but then I’d sell at Shaw’s [and] Walmart.

> This year’s sale is just getting started and runs through March 9. Are you going to try to beat last year’s number? Definitely.

> What’s your plan? I guess just go there every weekend and just stand out there for more than five hours [a day]. Just sit there, say “Thank you” if somebody buys some, and just be happy.

> Do you have a favorite kind of Girl Scout cookie? I’d say the Caramel deLites.

> What’s your favorite thing about Scouting? Doing community service. Every Thursday night I go to the food pantry at Church of the Good Shepherd [in Wareham] and serve food to the homeless.

> You’re a student council rep this year. What’s on your agenda? We’re going to meet the Chinese ambassador. And we’re just going to do a lot of community service. In Wareham, a family’s house burned down, so we’re gathering money in our school.

> What do you want to be when you grow up? Maybe a lawyer or a professor. I think those are my two options right now. I watch Judge Judy sometimes. I [also] love teaching math. I have friends over, and I teach them different strategies to help them more. So it’s neck to neck with those two.
