March 25 (UPI) -- Get ready to feel like an underachiever.

Katie Francis, a sixth-grader from Oklahoma City, Okla., has sold a whopping 18,107 boxes of Girl Scout cookies, breaking the organization's national record.

Though the previous record was 18,000 boxes, Francis hopes to sell 20,000 boxes by the time the selling period ends next week.

"There's three ingredients to selling cookies," Francis told NewsOK's Brandy McDonnell. "Lots of time, lots of commitment and I have to ask everybody I see."
