Hi, my name is Louis. I am 17 years old, born and raised in Maryland. I am a member of the Cameroon American Council's African Congressional Fellows Program. Right now I am a part of the highschool student initiative. As a Senegalese American I hope this program will help me in the future to become a better role model.
In the program we learn to be activists and we do this because the African Immigrant community needs a voice that will be heard. We accomplish this in many ways like making calls to congressional offices and meeting with their staffers. I have learned many things in D.C., by traveling to various places like the Smithsonian's American Art Museum and its National Portrait Gallery were I learned about our nations art and history. I also went to the Navy Memorial where I learned about our countries naval reserves and veterans. This program is preparing me for college which is a big step for any person. We have taken days in order to plan college visits so that our horizons would expand. This internship has opened me up to the world on how you must be active when you strive for anything or it will just fade away.
I know the fellows who came before me donated so the program I am in right now could continue and I would like to thank them for them. I want to continue that tradition so the next generation can have the opportunities I have come across. I hope you donate money to our cause in order to better the next generation of African immigrant activists wanting to make a change. Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for your donations..
