This summer I had the pleasure of working on two City Council Campaigns within New York City;Mercedes Narcisse and Cheryl Pahaham. Since graduating college I knew that although I enjoyed politics I had a passion for working within the public relations industry. I enjoy connecting with the media and engaging with people on social media. I knew that if worked within the political arena these were the two tasks I wanted to take on. I encourage other women who will like to make a change within their community to think about the day-to-day activity they enjoy and incorporate them within your civic engagement activity. If you enjoy baking consider baking for a town hall meeting within the community. Maybe your organization is having an event a and small percentage can be donated to a political candidate you believe in whom is currently running for office. Political engagement should not be boring; it is a great opportunity to incorporate everything you love to make a long-term difference. Hosting a meet and greet for a local candidate in your home maybe extremely helpful to get the buzz out about a new candidate. Parents involved in their children’s school can set up a speaking opportunity for a candidate to educate parents and members in the community on a particular issue. I worked with a client who enjoyed dancing and organized flash mobs that encouraged those around them to vote for Barack Obama. Be creative, but most importantly be engaged!
During the 2008 elections I was interviewed for a documentary to give my thoughts on the role of youth in politics.

This week I was giving the opporunity to join LEVI'S new campaign "Shape what's to come" a new online global community for women to pursue their passions. I am very excited to share my love for politics with the world. Check my profile !!
