Describe your single-most favorite moment from your Distinguished Young Women experience.
My favorite moment from DYW was at Nationals when the Green Group was performing our lip synch song/dance onstage. We didn’t really know what we were doing, but it was so great to laugh with the girls onstage and have an amazing time. And we actually managed to pull it together and perform well!
