Sharing a wonderful memory from @barackobama #inaug2013 with #tonyperkinsfox5 #genuinelyhappy

Thinking back to when I got to meet President Obama on the metro at #inaug2013 after he FINALLY didn't say the words "clean coal" in a major address with some of my best college organizing buddies after we won a trip to the Inauguration for completing the most Climate voter calls during the 2012 election of any other student org in the country. Getting ready to watch Barry O speak as our #POTUS for one last time and feeling so lucky again to have literally grown up as a human and grown as an organizer under the Obama Administration. #ObamaFarwell

Throwback to when I woke up at 4am and watched the sun rise on what I thought was a bright new age...#thanksobama #butactually #yeswecan #inaug2013

A little #tbt to the best weekend I had as a music major. I had the privilege to sing at the Presidential Inauguration with the likes of Beyoncé, James Taylor, Kelly Clarkson, and Brooklyn Tab. Can't get over how cool it was. #inaug2013

Can you spot a Zach and an Amy? Believe it or not, we were basically strangers in this photo. I remember it so clearly. I was in a little bus with a group from Greenville College on our way to Washington DC For the 2013 Presidential Inauguration. I woke up a few hours into our drive super disoriented and with a desperate urge to pee. I asked where we were and they said "We're in Indiana. We're picking up Zach Griffey at his house" i said "who?". After a few wrong turns, we pulled into the driveway and I immediately stepped off the bus only to find Zach Griffey standing there. I proceeded to introduce myself by shaking his hand and said "hi, i'm Amy and I really gotta pee, can I please use your restroom?". I had never really thought about what the first thing would be that I would say to the man who would later become my husband. Unfortunately that's not the sort of thing you can plan out really. Oh well! The first thing he said to me was "Yes" so that was good because i was serious about finding a bathroom! Guess which seat was the only one not taken on the little bus?! Yep, it was the one right next to me! So Zach Griffey sat by me and told me about how he liked hockey and playing the drums and how he thought we were in the same American History class together last semester. And I told him about how I was on the dance team or something. And guess who fell asleep on my shoulder? Yep. Zach Griffey did, but I didn't mind. I texted my mom about how a cute Junior guy was sitting next to me.. Now fast forward three years and a few months into the story and those two strangers in the photo are in the process of planning their wedding! Thank you to the guy who never showed up, which made for an extra ticket! And thank you to Julie Kerr, the lady standing behind me in this photo for thinking to invite Zach at the last minute! I owe you one!

Four years ago I stood in the freezing cold for hours upon hours and watched President Obama take the oath of office for the second and final time. There are 24 hours left in his administration and while I'm incredibly sad for what tomorrow will bring, I'm trying to focus on celebrating what we've achieved in the last 8 years.

4 years ago, i sat in the frigid cold on the Capitol Building and got to sing for my country and also experience something that not a lot of people get to. This was by far one of the greatest experiences of my life and i was nowhere near deserving. i can't wait to sit my grandchildren down one day and tell them how i sang at the second inauguration of our first black president. And that was my proudest day as an American. Just being able to see everyone come together and be a part of something bigger than ourselves. •

In memory of the last eight years and the first ever black president of the United States of America here is my ticket to Obama's reinauguration from this day 4 years ago. #obamaout #potus #44 #barackobama #presidentobama #joebiden #inaug2013 #inauguration2013 #throwback #tbt

#fbf It was freezing that day, but we were too excited to even care! Peep my Obama hat 😂 #Inauguration2013 #Inaug2013 #Obama

Inauguration Day. National Mall, January 2013. We stood waaay in the back, furiously waved our American flag, and felt like we were BFFs with everyone around us. 🇺🇸
