1) Imagine you didn't have DG in your life.. describe your personality/life.
"I have a feeling I would be very bored, and wouldn't know what to do without the wonderful friendships and people I have come to know through DG. I would still be stuck in "high school" and not creating new experiences for myself and driving myself to succeed."
2) What about DG will you miss the most?
"I will miss everything. I think the thing I will miss the most is always having someone around and someone there for you - someone to hang out with or go out with. The friendships that I have made... I will cherish and keep them forever!"

"I am really glad I have gotten to meet each and every one of you. You all are amazing girls and unique in each of your own ways. We all have so much to offer, and I wish you all the best of luck in all aspects of life! I will cherish the memories we have made, and will miss being DG Pledge Class 06 very much!!"
