OKLAHOMA CITY - Lilly Thomson is only 10-years-old, but she is persistent.

After telling our KFOR crew that she wanted to make it to one of the top three sellers of Girl Scout cookies, we agreed to interview her if she reached her goal.

"3,636," said Lilly Thomson.

That's right, Lilly sold over 3,500 boxes of Thin Mints, Samoas, Trefoils, Tag Alongs and Do-Si-Dos to reach that lofty goal that she set for herself.

"Somebody told me that I could maybe be in the top three for Western Oklahoma and I really wanted that really bad, so I just tried to reach it," she said.

In fact, she had to raise her goal three times.

"I wasn't that sure if I was going to reach it but I still tried because you can't hit it if you don't try," Lilly said.

When thinking about the future, she says she wants to go to Harvard to become a lawyer.

"When you put your mind to something, you can do anything," she said.
