I am the manager of www.my.barackobama.com, a set of organizing tools that allows people to take action online for President Obama. I love the work I'm doing, and credit a lot of my love for my job to Connelly. It gave me the ability to think critically and work well under pressure. More importantly, Connelly gave me the space to learn more about social justice and leadership - two things that really motivate me in my work."
