It’s Tetris with Billboard News hanging out with my friends from the Dream Academy. Hi, ladies! I mean, what a journey it’s been. And now we’re here at the top 10. So now that we’re here, what would you say has been the hardest part of the journey?
I think the hardest part so far has been saying goodbye to the other girls. It’s obviously very sad. Yeah, I’m still so happy to be here with all of these beautiful nine girls.
And speaking of being here, with all the other girls, you guys have created a sisterhood. I mean, you guys live together. So tell me what it was like to share that bond.
I feel like our bond is truly unbreakable. I think it’s a bond like no other. I think having girls from all over the world is such a special and unique experience. And I think to be able to share these moments of, moments that we’ll cherish for the rest of our lives together has, you know, created this bond with one another that’s truly unbreakable. And it’s such a blessing to be able to experience it with such amazing girls.
Well, now I want to know about some of these moments, because I know there’s things that are happening that are behind the scenes. So tell me: What’s a funny memory that you guys think you will hold on to?
