I feel incredibly honored to be your Class of 2019 Distinguished Young Woman. I am overflowing with gratitude towards my family and friends for all the support they have given me- I love you. I am so thankful for all the young ladies whom I’ve grown closer to, I love you all! Big shoutout to my Mother Hen Amie, you’re the best. From this program I have learned to never be anything less than My Best Self. I hope more become interested in this program because it has proven to be more than a scholarship program - it plants the seed of self confidence and self worth. Thank you DYW!
