I was born and raised a Democrat. At the age of five, I worked on my first campaign and went door to door handing out flyers for Lynn Rivers during her campaign for Congress. At her election night party I went with a picture I drew for her and the next day a picture of us was featured in the local paper. From being pulled out of school to see Bill Clinton speak at a local high school, to my first Beanie Baby being the Democrat Donkey “Lefty” I was raised to participate in politics. I have always had a fascination with politics and I have never missed watching the poll results come in. All of this has led me to be a huge backer of President Obama. I truly believe he is following through with the promises he made while campaigning and he is serving with great integrity. One of the many aspects I really admire is how he is working with the Republicans and demonstrating bipartisanship for the betterment of the country. These are just a few of the reasons I wanted to work with the Obama campaign and help President Obama continue on with the work he is doing for another four years.
I look forward to working as a Summer Organizer this summer! So far it has been a great experience, and I look forward to continuing my work alongside a group that has as much passion towards the Democratic Party and President Obama as I do!
