This November will be one of the most important midterm elections of our lifetime. Midterm elections are just as important as the Presidential election. We all have a voice.

I remember being able to vote for the first time ever in 2008, and to see former President Obama win and carry out two terms in the White House, meant everything to me to be apart of history at that very moment.
