My Best Memories From Washington, D.C.!

Hey there!

I am gonna share with you all about my awesome experience in Washington, D.C. It was really, really, really fun and one of the best experiences in my life. First of all, I want to thank the NTID community, especially NTID President Gerry Buckley, for asking me to Washington, D.C. to participate in the Youth Summit. It was a huge opportunity for me to learn something new and to meet new people from around the country. During the summit we discussed different health issues and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). It was a long day!


The summit was held in a huge building named the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Guess what? I saw President Obama. The ASL interpreter said please shout out and cheer big for someone. I was puzzled until I saw someone entering the stage. It was President Obama!!! I saw him with my own eyes! It was the best memory in my entire life!


And guess what else? The next day I got a White House Tour. It was beautifully decorated with many Christmas decorations and different Christmas trees. The White House was built in 1792, so there were many historical and interesting things I saw on my tour.


This is a photo of me (far left) and another RIT/NTID student Lakeisha Brown (second from right) standing behind the White House with some students we met from another university.

I hope you enjoyed my best blog ever!
