You probably already know that I’m very involved with politics, but you probably didn’t know that I teamed up with Running Start to raise funds for young women who aspire to run for political office.
Three years ago, Running Start provided me the opportunity to work as a fellow for a female member of Congress, political mentorship, leadership training, DC housing free-of-charge, and a stipend for my work. Running Start helped provide many of the connections and experiences I needed to land an internship as the only communications to serve the Chief of Staff office during the Obama's Administration.
Grateful for the opportunity to be apart of the Running Start family, at the beginning of 2018, I pledged raise more the first 10 days of the New Year to raising over $1K for Running Start. In about 10 days, I was able to raise over $1.2 K to prepare women who aspire to run for office.
This led to me being selected as one of the seven finalist to present a competitive speech at the 12th Annual Young Women to Watch Awards on March 14th. With the votes from the attendees during the awards, I will have a chance to become the #ILOOKLIKEAPOLITICIAN ambassador. Check out the link below to see how you can come out and support!
