This weekend, I had the privilege of adjudicating the Distinguished Young Woman of Arizona scholarship program with four outstanding individuals. We spent a full day interviewing the 24 contestants and were blown away by their thoughtful answers and composure. On Saturday evening, we watched as they performed a grueling fitness routine (seriously -- it involved like 50 squats and lunges), answered a question on stage and performed their talents. It was so hard to choose a winner as they were all phenomenal young women, but in the end the title went to Jessica Yan of Westwood High. She is an incredibly talented vocalist with grades and test scores worthy of any ivy league school. She is going to represent Arizona so well at the DYW national program in Mobile, Alabama next June. As a participant myself 12 years ago, I gained so much from DYW, and not just in scholarship money. This stellar program teaches young women how to channel their talents and skills so they can present their best selves wherever they go. It truly changes lives.
