Guest Post: First Time Voting for President

By Stephanie Valentin

When I was much younger, I wasn’t educated about or too interested in “politics.” It was in the year 2016 that I realized how many opinions of my own I did have based on my beliefs I’ve developed as a growing teenager. I didn’t know anything about Donald J. Trump at the time, but it wasn’t long before I learned about his history, and what he was striving for as a candidate for the 2016 presidential election. Up until Election Day, I laughed at this man, thinking to myself that there’s no way America will vote him into office. Although I couldn’t vote at the time as a 16 year-old, I had faith in who the country would choose.
