"Why don't you run for city council?", "I don't think you should run.", "Are you ready?"
Everyday, my decision to run for Congress precedes me. I have never ran for or held public office, and I can't pretend that I'm a political wizard either. However, I can and will always stay true to what I know: helping people.
Being surrounded by the problems of the world and the immense possibility to create positive change in our nation fuels me everyday. I may not yell from every street corner, respond to every tweet or have all the answers, but I'm here to work towards change because it's needed now more than ever.
I did not ask for anyone's permission to run over Congress and I don't plan to anytime soon.
