Girl Scout Tops Cookie Sales Despite Rare Condition

Tyra Young, 10, of Girl Scout Troop 2295, sells cookies Feb. 12 at a Safeway store in Colorado Springs. Although missing two chromosomes prevents her from articulating words or standing for long periods, possibly the only person in the world with her condition, Tyra is the top cookie seller in Troop 2295. Her mother, Misty Young, says “Trya loves interacting with people.” As a sixth grader at Skyview Middle School in Falcon School District 49, her favorite subject is physical education. “I’m so glad our school district is moving toward inclusion,” said Young.
