THE STORY:

Hey my name is Kimberly Doue-guys and I am 16 years old. I was born in in America And stayed here for 10 years, then I went to Ivory Coast and stayed there for five years. This year, I came on vacation to visit my parents. During these vacations, I decided to look for a job but because of my age it wasn't possible. So, my best friend recommended me to her boss, Miss Sylvie, the head of the Cameroon American Council. At first, I wasn't too excited because I didn't know anything about politics or about African immigrants. All I knew was that my parents were African immigrants and that was all! I didn't know the details or the problems of African immigrants in America. But then this program was an eye-opener for me. The African congressional fellow ship program help me understand and see the problems of African immigrants in America. It also taught me so many things, like art appreciation, who my members of Congress are and how I can contact them, career planning and so much more. To be honest, before I didn't even know what Congress did but now I can tell you how many senators are in the senate. I mean,when my best friend told me about this program, I thought I was just going to be sitting down and doing a lot of boring paperwork, I didn't know I was going to go to museums, Looking at historical sites and going to Congress to talk to actual Congress members!
> It would be very amazing if you could donate to this program to allow other teens to live the same experience that I'm living right now. Your donation can change and shape many other teens, I know that the previous college students also fundraised for me and my other friends that I'm working with, really changed our lives and I really thank them for that.
