Last spring, a graduating UW senior unlike any other, took the stage at the UW commencement ceremony to deliver a powerful rendition of the national anthem that belied her 5-foot stature and 16 years of age.
“I was grinning through the whole song,” Denná Good-Mojab, now 17, said. “The second I got off stage I said, ‘I just wanna do it again.’”
An aspiring opera singer, Good-Mojab sang the national anthem for a crowd of 40,000 at Husky Stadium. But she wasn’t fazed by the audience.
