On December 4, 2013, the White House held a youth social summit to discuss health care. They asked 60 youth leaders from all over the country to attend this summit. They asked Nikki and The City :)

It was more than a summit

True, they held a summit about health care, but it was so much more. After the summit I attended a social media session. During the session, myself along with others, advised the White House on how to make the Health Care Act more digestible for our generation. Afterwards, I attended a session about guns and violence. Once again, myself along with others, advised White House administrators on what needs to be the focus for guns and violence. Ya’ll KNOW I had to speak up on issues in Chicago. Check out my journey:

Started from the bottom now I'm here...lol

Thank you to everyone who made this dream of mine a reality. I will never forget this experience. EVER. I plan to tell my grandchildren about this experience. This is just the beginning.

Your Cousin,

Nikki
