I am honored to have received Conditional Acceptance to the White House Internship Program. What an honor! Now I need help from the community, friends, peers, colleagues, and family to help pay for my flight and intern housing.

I am elated to have received Conditional Acceptance to the White House Internship. What an honor! Now I need help from the community, friends, peers, colleagues, and family to help pay for my flight and intern housing.

I have worked hard and I am dedicated to serving every American, especially Texans. To give you a brief overview of my background, I began working for Obama's reelection campaign in 2011 as the youngest volunteer; by the end of the election I helped build a strong team of volunteers and Fellows as the Neighborhood Team Leader of the Montrose/Heights area. I spent the next summer interning at city hall, proudly serving the residents of District B for City Councilmember Jerry Davis. Now I am privileged to intern for Texas State Senator Rodney Ellis where I am learning to be a steward to the residents of Texas. I have also had formal training from Annie's List and Wellstone and was a member of the Texas White House State Day delegation.

I am a Representative in the University of Houston-Downtown Student Government Association where I strive to be the voice of our Non-Traditional student population. I am the Parliamentarian of the Pre-Law Association, President of the Black Student Association, and a member of the American Marketing Association.

Outside of school I am a the proud mother of my four year old daughter, a member of the Order of the Eastern Star (Queen Elizabeth Grand Chapter), and a member of the Harris County Young Democrats.

The internship is unpaid and there is no stipend but the experience is invaluable!

Every little bit counts, even $5. A small donation is much appreciated.

Thank you all for believing and praying for me.
