I have made a career from being borderline obsessed with the United States Congress. While the rest of America remains apathetic towards congress and politics in general, I remain passionate and unwavering in the necessity for others to participate in the democratic process. How does a young, black woman fall in love with the legislative branch of government and why should we, as citizens, care about Washington, D.C.
I’m Heather, Heather B., or HB (or Heather Lynn if you are my mother).
I like Malbec, dresses with pockets, bourbon, C-SPAN, J.D. Salinger, and electoral politics. I dislike clowns, large crowds, cooked carrots, ice-skating, and the size of my feet. My favorite word is pulchritude. I just like the way it rolls off the tongue.
