@NPR's #shevotes hashtag series is too enticing, so here it goes. NPR asks: Who or what first got you interested in politics? Answer: My interest and involvement in politics is so deeply rooted that I honestly cannot trace it back to one source (policy debates were commonplace at the dinner table and in my social circles). But here is the first trace of photographic evidence: my first inauguration, circa 1996 (I was sworn into Weston Elementary School's student council by now Ohio State Senator Randy Gardner). Flash forward eighteen years, and I'm still at it: working in the nation's capital at the Center for American Progress advocating for the policies and issues I'm most passionate about. #politics #tbt #throwback #npr #kiene2016
