Cookie Rally 2024 - Kristina Lachaga to Host & Perform!

Calling all Girl Scouts & Girl Guides! Can you believe it?! The 2024 Cookie Season is almost here!

I'm so honored to host and perform at USA Girl Scouts Overseas' 2024 Cookie Rally on Saturday, January 13th!

Her excitement is high and her dreams are big! This Girl Scout Cookie Season she's ready to own her magic and so are her Girl Scout champions.

We know Girl Scout Cookie entrepreneurs are true forces of nature - they're bold, curious, and bring a little bit of magic to everything they do no matter how big or how small.

Whether she's planning her own cookie stand, running a booth with her troop, or making the magic happen on her digital cookie page, USA Girl Scouts Overseas has the tools to help her reach her goals.

It's Time to Cookie Rally!

Cookie Rally 2024 will be packed with inspirational and informational activities designed to help each girl push past boundaries, explore the unknown, and realize she can do anything-especially with her Girl Scout sisters by her side. Let the magic begin!

The Girl Scout Cookie Program® is so much more than selling cookies. Through the experience, girls build 5 skills that will last a lifetime: goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics. USAGSO's Cookie Rally will provide girls with opportunities to think about each of these skills and how to put them into action as a team.

Through hands-on activities, special guest presenters, and even an exclusive concert from our host, pop singer/songwriter and Girl Scout Lifetime Member, Kristina Lachaga, girls will not only have a blast, but will also leave ready to rock the Cookie Season!

Kristina will be joined by Special Guests to help inspire our Girl Scouts to 'Own Their Magic!' this Cookie Season.

Misty Lee - Female Magician, Illusionist, and Voice Actress

Misty Lee

Magician, Séance Medium, Professional Voice Actress, and Writer - Misty Lee is renowned for her saucy brand of sorcery and sophisticated stage illusion.

Raised in Detroit near notorious 8-Mile-the world where Eminem's fictional movie was set-Misty credits her 'school of hard knocks' upbringing as inspiring her macabre sense of humor and interest in the so-called "dark arts." She began performing magic when she was just sixteen but was quickly disillusioned by the ever-shrinking costumes given to her by the local talent dispatch.

Misty moved from Detroit to Los Angeles in 2005. In the eight years since, Misty has become the go-to girl for all things magically freaky, demonstrating her spooky skills in stage performances, séances, hosting, and magical consulting.

The only magician ever admitted into the Institute of Analytic Interviewing, Misty Lee underwent training alongside CIA, ATF and Scotland Yard agents with 'Truth Wizard' J.J. Newbury. Her mastery of Cognitive Interview techniques and skill for reading both Microexpressions and Body Language has enhanced her ability to deceive on stage and inspired her nickname of 'Human Lie Detector.' "Some people say it makes me Sherlock-ian and scary," admits Lee with a grin. "I think it just renders me a bit annoying." Magic's 'Wicked Witch of the West Coast,' Misty is also a professional vocal actress with extensive training in theater and Improv. She can be heard in an array of cartoons and video games, including Witch Hazel on Mickey and Friends Trick or Treats and Aunt May on Disney XD's Ultimate Spider-Man.

Natalia Trevino Amaro - CEO and Founder of the sustainable-fashion brand NTA

Natalia Trevino Amaro

Hello! I'm Natalia :) I was born in Spain, lived in Mexico for a few years, and ended up in the US for the majority of my life (and yes, I do speak Spanish). I've always been an artsy kid. I grew up in the performing arts and have always found different ways to express my creativity. When my family moved to the US, it was the first time I attended a school that didn't require a uniform and little did I know, that would be life-changing. I became so excited to pick out my clothes every day of school and fell in love with expressing my personality through clothes. As an already shy kid, being dropped off at a school where you don't speak the language yet was intimidating, but fashion kept me excited nevertheless.

Fashion design was something I've always wanted to pursue, but didn't think of it as a "legit career" until I got to high school and learned to sew. From my freshman year onward, I created and created, eventually reaching senior year, where I applied to all the best fashion schools.

After endless months of waiting, in April of 2018, I was accepted to the Fashion Institute of Technology's international fashion design program. This meant I was going to be starting college at Polimoda in Florence, Italy and then heading back to New York to finish my degree.

During my time in both Italy and New York, I attended fashion week in both Paris and Milan - seeing a lot of the "behind-the-scenes" of the industry. I also got the opportunity to intern at Cucculelli Shaheen in New York which was an incredible experience. During my time at FIT, I was exposed to the conversation about sustainability in the industry. Growing up in the midwest, sustainability is not something I had really paid attention to. After hearing my classmate's thoughts, I started doing my own research and quickly shifted my mindset on fast fashion. At the end of my freshman year, I completely cut myself off from shopping fast fashion and have not looked back since.

I had always planned on doing a full 4-year bachelor's degree, but 2020 happened and my plans shifted. I decided to only pursue a 2-year AAS degree and ended up graduating in May of 2020 from my parent's living room in Indiana amidst the early stages of the pandemic.

I launched my brand in June of 2020, shortly after graduating. I had no clue what to expect, but it has been nothing short of a dream. I've met countless people who are equally passionate about building a better fashion industry and I continue to learn ways in which to progress. I'm thankful you're here and I hope you, too, will join me in building a better future.

Amy von Diest - Co-Owner of Clothesline Boutique (in Cambodia!) and USA Girl Scouts Overseas' Council of Advisors

Amy von Diest

Hi! My name is Amy and I am a lifelong Girl Scout. Hard to believe but next year will mark my 40th year as a member! I am so happy join the Cookie Rally as I loved selling Girl Scout cookies as a girl and feel so special to be invited.
For the past 8 years I have built a small business in Phnom Penh, Cambodia called Clothesline Resale Boutique. If you asked me as a teen if I would be living in Cambodia in 20 years I may not have believed you but it actually makes perfect sense. I am a very brave and adventuresome person and love experiencing new things. I started Clothesline with my Cambodian partner Chenda, we actually first met at Sangam World Center as she's an active member of Girl Guides of Cambodia! We started our business because we both wanted to make a difference while working from our house to help support elderly family members. My skills as a traveler and also a business owner come from my wide and varied Girl Scout experience. Especially my practice in goal setting, decision making, speaking up, and also listening for understanding, all of these skills I learn and practice as a Girl Scout and they serve me on a daily basis.
Before moving to Asia I spent fifteen years working professionally for Girl Scouts of Alaska supporting Girl Scout programs happening in small, isolated western Alaska villages. I care about putting my energy and skills into communities where I can truly make a difference while learning everyday. In my freetime you will find me spending time exploring urban wildlife with my niece and nephews, drinking good coffee, and slowly working my way through all of the Newbery Award winning books!
My advice to girls is dont stop, find a way for Girl Scouting to stay part of your life because the older you get the wider the opportunities are for you within our global movement! I have gotten to learn and practice my leadership in so many special places and all of my global leadership opportunities have happened after my twenties! No matter if you are five or fifty-five Girl Scouting is as great as you want to make it and I am pretty lucky at what our Movement has given me. My current Girl Scout dreams are to travel to my fifth world Center Our Cabana to celebrate my four decades of Girl Scout awesomeness, be a contributing member of the USAGSO Advisory Board, and someday become a Girl Scout troop leader for my Cambodian niece.Perhaps our paths will cross again one of these days and certainly look us up when visiting Cambodia!
Excited to see you all at the Cookie Kickoff!
