A record has been set for most Girl Scout cookies ever sold by 12-year-old Katie Francis of Oklahoma City, who sold 18,107 boxes in the seven-week sales period that ended Sunday night.

"I was just really really happy. I started dancing around. I was excited that I had made it," the sixth grader told KOCO.com after learning that she had broken the record Sunday night.

"It's a lot of fun and I'm really good at it," Katie added. "Cookie selling is just so much fun to me."

Francis beat out the prior record, of approximately 18,000 Girl Scout cookie boxes, which was set in the 1980s by Elizabeth Brinton, the Associated Press reported.

Francis' commitment to selling Girl Scout Cookies isn't a fluke. Last year, the burgeoning saleswoman sold an impressive 12,428 boxes.

The "A" student's mother, DeLee Francis, told KOCO.com that selling so many cookies "takes a lot of time and a lot of adrenalin. But it's a lot of fun, too."

"There's three ingredients to selling cookies: There's lot of time, lots of commitment, and I have to ask everybody that I see (to buy)," the energetic Girl Scout added in an interview with The Oklahoman newspaper.

In February, another Girl Scout, 13-year-old Danielle Lei, made news for opening up a cookie stand in front of a medical marijuana clinic in San Francisco. In just two hours, Lei, received help from her mother, Carol, sold 117 boxes.
