“All people see when they look at me is blonde hair and big boobs.”
– Elle Woods (Legally Blonde)
If you know me you know that I am the Youth Program Director for a non profit called New Yorkers Against Gun Violence. An organization designed to encourage action, influence public opinion that leads to policy change. . Check us out and get involved Here.
During the summer I am emerged in press Conferences, D.C lobby trips and the halls of congress. Sounds exciting? Well it is except for the the unspoken dress code. Honestly everyone on capital hill looks exactly the same. A scene straight out of Men in Black! !! It’s quite nauseating. Ive never pictured me and “Elle Woods” played by Rease Weatherspoon ever having anything in common but oddly enough we do. The need for individuality!! In my attempt to never conform and with the support of my director; I usually show up to monthly meetings in guess what, COLORS. More often than not I’m the youngest person in the room}(which sucks on so many levels being that gun violence disproportionally affects young people between the ages of 17-24) , fitting in is already out if the question so why not stand out?
I am CornerRich wherever I go. Proudly. Just like ….
