Aria Pelikan, a student at John Weldon, has earned the title of “Top Cookie Boss.” The determined fifth grader has been the top Girl Scout cookie seller in the St. Louis region for the past two years, and this year, she has a goal of selling an impressive 4,100 boxes of cookies. With charts to track her progress and the networking skills to flourish her business, Aria is well on her way towards that goal.

Pelikan reflected on how selling girl scout cookies has taught her important skills that will prepare her for life. “I get to be a goal setter, a decision-maker, and I get to have good people’s skills. It gives me the confidence to talk to adults,” said Aria.

She is a true businesswoman and hopes to become a CEO one day. For now, though, she is focused on the cookie business and training her little sister to become a “Top Cookie Boss,” too.
