Describe your single-most favorite moment from your Distinguished Young Women experience. My favorite Distinguished Young Woman memory is definitely Finals night at Nationals. I loved watching my friend Brooke win and be able to celebrate with both my host family and my real family. All of these individuals have made positive impacts on my life, and being able to share the two weeks with them made lasting impressions I will never forget.
