I grew up dreaming of being the first female President of the United States. I followed these dreams to Washington, D.C., where I majored in Government at Georgetown University (the alma mater of then-President Bill Clinton).
Sometime during my time in Washington, D.C., I realized that I wasn’t interested in entering the political fray myself. My dreams for myself changed. But my dreams for our country did not.
This is what I told Hillary Clinton when I met her last year (pictured above). I told her that, while I had changed my mind about the path that I wanted to take, I was so grateful that she would be the one to carry this mantle.
Yesterday, Hillary Clinton became the first female nominee of a major political party for President of the United States. It is an historical moment, and I am so grateful to have arrived in Philadelphia to witness it myself.
