I’ll never forget this moment. It was incredible to meet both Barack and Michelle Obama, but not just to meet them, but to also jump aboard the same team along with 19 other extraordinary humans, the fellows, to strive for community-led change and positive influences towards a brighter future. The conversation we all shared together was awesome- we laughed, connected, and shared deep insights. Of course “change” can be abstract and complicated, but the humanity in us isn’t - kindness and compassion - to start with will lead the way. Thanks @barackobama and @michelleobama for sharing your vision with us, for believing in us, and for expanding the team to include many many and (yes, many more) changemakers.

In case you can’t tell by the expression on my face here, I was extremely overwhelmed with emotions (joy, gratitude, nervousness, excitement, inspiration) meeting with the President and Mrs. Obama, and to have the opportunity to hear directly from them, their vision for civic leadership and a stronger democracy. I feel so lucky that we have leaders like them who are willing to share their wisdom and their community to build the next generation of civic leaders. I am so so so humbled and honored to be one of the inaugural class of #ObamaFellows — I already know these 19 world beaters will be an important part of the rest of my life. Here's a short essay I wrote about the most important lesson I learned in my week with @barackobama and @michelleobama following the link in my bio. #joy #civicleadership #ioby #gratitude #civicmuscle 💪🏿💪🏾💪🏽💪🏼💪🏻 Photo credit and gobs of gratitude to the @obamafoundation .
All I want to do is change the world! That's all.😊 I think the most powerful way to do that is to use your voice to influence/ speak on the things that matter most to you. Education, Leadership and Justice matter to me.
