    Monica Bishop, 12, is representative of the modern day Girl Scout.

    As a Cadette, she and the 14 other girls  in troop 50419 are working on a journey award studying media and how advertising works — influencing and affecting people.

    To earn the badge for the cookie program, she sold more than 1,000 boxes last year, with proceeds from all the girls’ sales financing a trip of their choice — to San Francisco.

    During the sale, she encouraged people who didn’t want cookies to make a cash donation used to send Girl Scout cookies to troops overseas. She earned her black belt in Tae Kwon Do last year.

    To Bishop, the most meaningful part of being a Girl Scout is “being able to learn things about Girl Scouts around the world, about their countries and what they do. Earning my own way through cookie points to go to Girl Scout camps is special too.”
