On the final day of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, I was asked to address the convention. Speaking on the night that Hillary Clinton made history as the first woman to ever accept the nomination of a major political party was without a doubt one of the greatest honors of my life. I will never forget representing our beautiful state on the stage, and I hope I made Colorado proud.
In my speech, I made a point that in this country, we do not define our value by our net worth. As the daughter of a family that relied on food stamps to get by when I was first born, and growing up to speak about it on a national convention stage, this could not ring more true for me. I have always known that Hillary Clinton shares this belief with me, and after her speech Thursday night, I am so proud of what she believes does define us.
