I'm back from #Washington D.C & I'm finally proud to say as team leader of Jackson State University that we won the 2016-2017 #UpToUs competition 😄😄! I'm real late on posting pics but only because I wanted to live in the moment & fully experience it! May 22 - 25, 1 person from the top 20 teams got flown out to #DC for the amazing Peter G. Peterson #FiscalSummit and we later got to explore #CapitalHill and speak 1st hand with elected officals! This was my 1st time in D.C and it was so amazing thanks to hanging out with awesome friends from the other teams. The most shocking thing is that the white house is WAYY smaller than I expected. Black suburbans are everywhere (its ah, secret society 🎵🎶 😂😂). The monuments were beautiful😍 and my only regret was not having more time to visit the museums 😭. We did a TON of walking omg it was like mad cardio (so many hills) but it was sooo worth it. My favorite person to see was Mitch Landrieu, Mayor of New Orleans. Later that night I found out via Youtube he took down all confederate monuments in New Orleans and was like wow I wish I had took a photo with him and chatted. I have gained so much knowledge and understanding of how things are done behind the scenes in politics. There is such a potent atmosphere walking around these important political places. The theme I've seen from every elected official who we spoke to is that success is seen & maintained the most through #bipartisan efforts. People in congress and even us as regular citizens need to toss egos aside and focus on that. We are all Americans here 👍. When it comes to the long term national debt that is something that effects us all. Lets work towards a brighter future 🔥⭐. We got recognized on stage & I also did tons of radio interviews! Lots of more pics are on the way haha.
