Traveling Abroad

I honestly don’t remember voting for the first time. While we discussed voting in our family, I wouldn’t say we put a priority on it. I am sure there are many elections in which I have not voted (embarrassingly enough).

In college I had the opportunity to travel abroad and become more aware of the world. It is through these experiences that I came to understand that voting is such a privilege! I had underestimated the power and importance of having a voice through my vote.

I now enjoy taking my boys to the polls with me. I hope to instill the importance of having a voice through voting!
