This summer I have had the honor of being a Congressional Intern through the CHCI program with Congresswoman @repbarbaralee . I never thought someone like me would ever be walking the halls of our country’s Capital, and working with Congress. But here I am, 20 years old, definitely out of my element, on Capital Hill. Thank you CHCI for investing in the growth of Latinx students, for building our communities leaders. Thank you to all the amazing people I consider my life mentors from @_bee.romero who pushed me to apply, and @doraelisa who put up with me reading my essays in the office over and over again to her, to @edgarfloresnv who wrote me a kickass recommendation letter, and @_selenatorres_ for believing in me despite all the headaches I’ve caused her. & thank you to my mom @franciscaloya & my dad for loving me, their little black sheep, unconditionally.
