Welcome to Smart As A Cookie: The Podcast, presented by USA Girl Scouts Overseas in partnership with Pop Singer/Songwriter Kristina Lachaga! Through interviews with female special guests, Smart As A Cookie aims to teach entrepreneurship skills to tweens, teens, and beyond, while inspiring listeners to #FollowYourHeartsDream™ – Kristina’s signature message.

Hosted by Kristina Lachaga, the first three seasons of Smart As A Cookie will feature noteworthy female Special Guests including Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022 Olympians, entrepreneurs & CEOs, business moguls, trailblazing changemakers, & more.

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,” Kristina says.

Girl Scouts has played a huge role in the podcast host’s growing career. Pop Singer/Songwriter Kristina Lachaga, “The Girl With The Big Pink Heart™” is a former (and forever!) Girl Scout and current Girl Scouts Lifetime Member. Lachaga has performed at many events for Girl Scouts throughout the East Coast, including Girl Scout QuestFest (2018-2022), Cookie Rallies, Girl Expos, and G.I.R.L. 2017 – Girl Scouts of the USA’s National Convention.

Lachaga began working with USA Girl Scouts Overseas in August 2020 during the Pandemic, allowing her to inspire new fans and create positive content for girls around the world…straight from her living room.

“The Girl With The Big Pink Heart™,” is a true champion for girls, inspiring and encouraging them to #FollowYourHeartsDream™. In April 2022, Lachaga received the Thanks Badge, Girl Scouts of the USA’s 2nd highest Volunteer Award, for her work with USA Girl Scouts Overseas & the entire Girl Scout movement. Her work with USA Girl Scouts Overseas also earned her an invitation to attend the United Nations Foundation’s Unlock the Future of Learning event in New York City during the United Nations’ General Assembly last year.

Lachaga is honored to work with USA Girl Scouts Overseas and the Girl Scouts they serve. 

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.

Episodes will be released twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursday at 2am Eastern Time, with the third season set to conclude in mid-April at the end of USA Girl Scouts Overseas’ Cookie Season. 

And that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
