At the presentation of the award Ms. Mary White retiring Principal of the Dominican College Wicklow said that “Daniela had been an outstanding student, diligent in her application to her studies and was always enthusiastic. She was an outstanding example of what can be achieved by any student who has the same approach to their studies as Daniela”.
