Today was a very productive day. I had the opportunity to speak with Elijah E. Cummings, our Congressman representative of Maryland, it was very inspiring because he taught all of us about passion and using that flaming intensity of your passion to help others. I enjoyed the fact that he told us that no matter through the good, bad and ugly, always value the things that come because it helps you grow as a person. His talk at the SquashWise facility at the Meadow Mill Club in Baltimore was very moving and personal because the SquashWise students were present with us, so there were multiple crowds of diverse, underrepresented students who could take advantage of Cummings’ great ideals.
After playing squash at the Meadow Mill Club and eating Chipotle, we headed to the Capitol of America. At first when I saw D.C., I fell in love with it because it felt like a metropolitan area similar to NYC, but it was a lot less crowded and busy. It was calm and quiet.
We then came over to visit the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument, and those statues are HUGE. Stay tuned for more.
