Describe your single-most favorite moment from your Distinguished Young Women experience.


My favorite part of DYW was the nights spent with my host family and my roommates at

Nationals. I created bonds that will last a lifetime. I remember laughing and struggling through

fitness and hanging out with the kids in my host family, whether they were showing me YouTube

videos or doing my hair. I am forever grateful for the bonds that DYW has given me
