As a student at Menlo, going to see Ahna's interview was amazing! She was so poised and a great speaker! She was so down to earth and so humble. I was so lucky to get to talk to her afterwards, and I even got a picture with her! She's a great role model for all girls my age and I wish her continued success in her career!
