A big “ole Booker” welcome

Yesterday, the group had the pleasure of meeting Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey. As Booker walked in the room, he yelled: “Is Drake, the rapper here?” The Senator flashed his award-winning smile and made everyone feel comfortable with his dad jokes. The meeting started by Booker asking each student about themselves and what their goals were for when they graduated. This allowed each person in the room to connect individually with the senator. Then came the questions. My hand shot up in the air before I could stop myself because I was overly excited to ask him a question. I asked him about his thought process while speaking during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and why he kept speaking when Senator Chuck Grassley scolded him for taking too long to make his point. Then, of course, we wanted to know if he would run for President in 2020, but like we thought he eluded the question by saying he would go running later tonight on a jog. Disclaimer, 110% believe he will announce very soon he is running for President. Booker’s staff kept reminding him he had somewhere to be so right before he left, he took a selfie with each and every one of us. I definitely fangirled after I was able a selfie with him and it is safe to say this trip was worth it.
