Last week, some very lucky students at McKinley Tech HS got a visit from President Obama! One of the students, MarQia (she's all the way to the left), in the room is in our Global Kids-DC program.
We asked MarQia about the day and this is what she had to say: "Meeting President Obama was a blessing for me. I was not expecting it at all because we were under the impression that we were just meeting Chancellor Wilson. When he came, time went still for me. I was meeting history itself. We talked about several topics, such as college, STEM education, DACA, etc. It wasn't weird because of his chill atmosphere. I will never forget that day and not just because he's 'Obama', but he because is so genuine about the work that he did and still does for this country. This was definitely a key moment in my life." #bettermakeroom #reachhigher
