Smart As A Cookie brings USA Girl Scouts Overseas' Cookie Rally interviews to the world of podcasts, making the interviews' advice and tips more accessible to Girl Scouts' younger members, as well as giving USA Girl Scouts Overseas the chance to explore a new platform to reach existing (and potential new) members living all over the world.
Smart As A Cookie is launching during Girl Scouts' biggest moment of the year - Cookie Season - where all eyes are on the season's hottest commodity. But the Girl Scout experience isn't just about selling cookies. Through Girl Scouts, girls learn entrepreneurship skills, confidence, character, and how to make the world a better place. And the interviews featured in Smart As A Cookie embody just that.
"Smart As A Cookie is for everyone because everyone is smart as a cookie. Our special guests not only offer advice and inspiration to help Girl Scouts succeed during Cookie Season, but this advice can be applied by anyone, anywhere who's chasing a dream or trying to reach a goal," Lachaga says.
Season One's Female Special Guests (and total girl bosses!) include:
- Mikaila Ulmer - Learn how to Bee Fearless & Bee You with Me & the Bees' Teen Founder & CEO
- Alina Morse - Dream BIG & Keep Smiling with Zolli Candy's Teen Founder & CEO

USA Girl Scouts Overseas (USAGSO) brings Girl Scouts to the daughters of military, foreign service, and American expat families around the world and to girls in American or International schools. An operating unit of Girl Scouts of the USA, USAGSO ensures that no matter where American families move, they will have access to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
Originally known as Lone Troops on Foreign Soil, Girl Scouts' overseas program began in 1925 with a single troop of 18 girls in Shanghai, China. Today, USAGSO supports over 8,000 members in 90+ countries around the world.
