Who Is The Moth?

Clue Package 1 (Week 2):

You know, moth don't seek out the spotlight. It draws us in whether we want it or not. That's the story of my life. One day, I was just a regular moth out of the view of the public. The next, I'm making headlines with the president. I had a traumatic experience that not many could have gone through. And in turn, my life changed forever. But I'm a survivor. So I decided that if I couldn't escape the spotlight, I would use it to shine a light on the things I cared about most. So I took control of my thing. And now I thrive in the spotlight.

Visual clues: Box of clothes, tabloids, the Capitol building
Word Up word: Inspired

Clue Package 2 (Week 3):

MAN: OK, everybody, let's quiet down. Two minutes to go.

MS MOTH: Thank you. Thank you. I never thought in my life that I'd be standing here before you today and even dancing on national television. I feel pretty confident now. But once, I was just a shy little caterpillar, trying to figure out my place in the world. We don't always choose the challenges we face. But metamorphosis is inevitable. It was my choice not to allow the traumatic details of my past to define my future. So here is my headline. Be brave. Be smart. Be yourself. Build a new foundation and blossom into the moth you were always meant to be. And this dance will show you just how much I have. Thank you.
