12-year-old Najah Lorde sells 2,833 boxes of Girl Scout cookies, becomes NYC’s top seller
Najah Lorde, of Queens, New York has a reason to be proud. The 12-year-old girl scout sold 2,833 boxes of Girl Scout cookies, making her the top seller in the city.
Lorde, who sold 1,111 boxes last year, pushed the cookies to school pals, church members and family.
She also brought her sales sheet along when she went with parents Deanne and Donovan Lorde to their jobs at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn. “I didn’t do anything differently from last year,” said the seventh-grader at Divine Wisdom Catholic Academy in Douglaston. “I was just more determined.”
Lorde beat out reigning Cookie Queen Olivia Cranshaw, 11, who sold more than 1,800 boxes last year.
