Girl Scout cookie season is in full swing and last year’s top cookie seller in the Bronx is looking to retain her title.
Naomi Gomez is a fifth-grader from the Bronx. On Wednesday, she went straight from school to set up her first booth of 2024.
Gomez sold over 2,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies last year, amounting to over $10,000 in sales.
“We hustled with our cart of cookies, and sold on the streets of New York,” said Gomez. “We're probably going to do a little better than last year.”
Gomez is already racking up sales online and now is doing the same in person to make sure she’s the top seller once again. Not only does it give her and her fellow Girl Scouts good entrepreneurial experience selling cookies, it also gives them a chance to raise money for their local troops.
“All the proceeds from New York City cookie sales stay in New York City. It goes to support all of our programs, from our leadership institute, to Troop 6000 to robotics to our cyber security program to our camp,” said Kary Nealis, leader of Troop 3234, Gomez’s troop.
