Best Special Olympics Memory:In my very first year of Rhythmic Gymnastics for my first competition, I won 3 first place ribbons and 1 second. It was pretty exciting for me because the spectators and other teams were asking, “Who is this Yanhong Dewan? Where did she come from?”
Hobbies and Activities:I like to do 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles. I love singing and dancing—jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, tap, ballet, and pointe. I enjoy helping in the kitchen or cleaning the house. I’d like to be an actress and perform in a musical some day.
Message to Sponsors:Thank you very much for sponsoring me this year. I really appreciate your support but I don’t know how to say it very well. Just THANK YOU!!!
