There are many layers to band leader positions.
I will never forget my 8th grade trip to Washington DC. One of my most profound memories was meeting Congressman John Lewis.

After going to many museums on the second day of the trip, we finally made our way on the bus to the Cannon House Office Building, right across from the US capitol.

Overall of my civic engagement experiences had one thing in common it brought joy and happiness to mine and everyone 's faces.

He is whom I look up to with loving trust and pride. He showed me how to reach my dreams.
