Running Start
September 3, 2009

When I landed in DC, I honestly didn't expect much out of the Running Start conference because I had never heard of the nonprofit and also because I didn't have to pay anything to go there. I've been to many leadership conferences in the past, some of them were very expensive, and my experience at Running Start was by far the best. I was able to shake hands with my Congresswoman, give my business card (provided by Running Start) to some of the top women leaders in DC, and listen and learn from the stories of 51 inspirational girls. Those five days ignited a passion for politics in me, and put me on the path towards the Capitol Building. When I become a political leader I will make sure more girls like me are able to attend Running Start so I can continue the cycle of strong young girls becoming powerful politicians.
