The Daffodil Festival is more than just a parade, and the young women who represent their high schools as Princesses were selected for their future ambitions and passion for community service. Now, they are recognized as official ambassadors of Pierce County.

What accomplishments brought you to the Daffodil Festival? The main accomplishment that has brought me to the festival is my ability to keep smiling. Sometimes high school life is understated--things can get pretty tough. But I still start every day off smiling and now I'm in a community of 23 other ladies who have the same positive attitude.
What are your future plans? Next year I plan on attending Whitworth University to earn a degree in Special Education and later go on to become an autism specialist. I would also like to see the world, have a family, and go on many adventures.
Who is someone you admire? My grandmother is one of my biggest inspirations. She came from Japan and raised my father as a first generation American. Her unwavering courage in the face of adversity will never cease to amaze me.
In 10 years, I will be… probably just as confused as I am now about what I want to do. But that's okay! Because I know I'll be happy and surrounded by people whom I love.
One of my hidden talents is… Mario Kart. As a part time nanny and babysitter, I've mastered every course! I'm basically a professional.
