A Kaiser High grad is heading to Alabama to compete for the title of Distinguished Young Woman of America for 2015.
After being named the Distinguished Young Women of Hawaii, Tianzhen Nie will travel to Mobile on June 14.
During her two weeks in Mobile, Nie will participate in team building activities, complete community service projects, interact with the Gulf Coast community through various events and engage in many hours of rehearsal in preparation for the three night scholarship competition.
“We are delighted to have fifty of the best young women that America has to offer to come to our city to participate in the 58th National Finals,” said Pam Patterson, Executive Director for Distinguished Young Women. “Mobile always opens its arms and welcomes these young ladies into their hearts and their homes. Sunday will be a great day as we meet these gifted individuals and begin our journey toward selecting the Distinguished Young Woman of America for 2015.”
If selected as the competition's overall winner, Nie will spend the next year representing the program across the country, promoting Distinguished Young Women's national outreach initiative of “Be Your Best Self.”
Nie will be attending the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill in the fall with aspirations to become an environmental lawyer.
