Last week may have been the highlight and one of my top moments while living in Washington, D.C. I never would have thought that I would get a fortunate opportunity like this. I was contacted from a former non profit I use to work for, and they told me about this event on the economy with President Barack Obama. They informed me that I could RSVP to enter the White House, and see him speak. Of course, I immediately responded and got onto the list to see the President.
As if being in the White House wasn’t exciting enough, I got the chance to meet Minority Leader of the US House of Rep, Nancy Pelosi. It was an unbelievable experience, and I am so thankful she made the time to meet the people who came out to hear Obama’s remarks on raising the minimum wage.
I remember moving to D.C., where I knew that one of the traditions of being a tourist was to take a photo in front of the White House. Flash forward to now, It’s surreal to think that I got to be inside of the White House, seeing and hearing President Obama up close and personal. Never in my life would I have thought that I could get an opportunity like this as a student.
Top DC moment? I think so.
