Favorite DV Memory?
As a Da Vinci alumni, I had so many amazing opportunities for creativity and community building that my DHS friends will never be able to understand. For instance, I remember staying up until 1 AM spray-painting tee-shirts in my parents' garage the night before a Hail to the Chief rally. I...
