My First Visit to The White House!

Stepped into The White House for the first time thanks to Beverly Bond and her amazing new initiative #KingMe! Partnering with Obama’s #MyBrothersKeeper, King Me Works to empower black boys to rock in the same way Black Girls Rock brings love, support, and encouragement to girls worldwide. Had an amazing time at the stimulating panel discussions and the post reception. Check the pics below!
