Describe your single-most favorite moment from your Distinguished Young Women experience. My favorite moment as a DYW was getting to meet my Girl Scout troupe at nationals. They spoiled me with gifts and made me feel so welcomed in Mobile. The real excitement though, was having a group of young girls look up to you. Being in positions of honor, like being a DYW, you’re always told that you have little girls looking up to you, but it’s not often that you get to really connect with them. These girls became such a part of my life during the time I was able to spend with them at nationals. Anytime I accomplish anything now, I look forward to telling them about it because their pride in me is one of the most inspirational feelings ever.
