Starkville Daily News - - FO­RUM -

DYW of Starkville Pro­gram Di­rec­tor Su­san Keith said Feng ex­hib­ited the same pos­i­tive at­ti­tude as her com­peti­tors.

“All the girls there talked about how friendly Lori was and how she al­ways had a smile on her face,” Keith said.

Feng said the mo­ment she was named the DYW of Mis­sis­sippi is a blur to her.

“I was pretty over­whelmed, and I don't think I had a co­her­ent thought go­ing through my head hon­estly,” Feng said.

Keith said it is no shock that Feng was named the state DYW.

“It didn't come as a big

sur­prise be­cause she's so bril­liant and tal­ented,” Keith said. “To me, she's the epit­ome of what Dis­tin­guished Young Woman is all about.”

Now that she is the DYW of Mis­sis­sippi, Feng said she is most look­ing for­ward to be­ing able to work with the DYW State Com­mit­tee and grow­ing more from the pro­gram, in­clud­ing do­ing more mock in­ter­views and prac­tic­ing her tal­ent.

Feng will go on to par­tic­i­pate in the na­tional pro­gram at the end of June of 2019 in Mo­bile, Alabama.

“I am also really ex­cited to at­tend the na­tional pro­gram next sum­mer and meet even more peo­ple in­volved with the pro­gram,” Feng said.
