I had the honor of volunteering for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio last week. I had a total of 5 shifts as a hotel greeter and a GOP Express worker.

The delegates staying at my assigned hotel were from Missouri, Guam, the North Marianas Islands, and the Virgin Islands. The second hotel I was assigned to had members of the media. Everyone was extremely complementary. They loved Cleveland (and the surrounding areas), the volunteers, and the community. The delegates felt very welcome in Northeastern Ohio.

The delegates from Guam reminded me of my former father-in-law. Many people who live in Guam (27%) are Filipino. The men were all dressed in suits with florals leis around their necks.

I met one of the Missouri delegates who is a professional Abraham Lincoln look-a-like. He gave all of us a business card. We enjoyed listening to his stories!

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah was in town to cover the convention. I was fortunate enough to get a ticket online to attend the July 19th live taping of the show!! I felt like a true Fangirl. Trevor Noah is one of my favorite comedians. The show was hilarious.

I am glad I was able to experience a part of history. I'm so happy the RNC came to Cleveland and had a fantastic experience. I'm still tired from all the activities. It's a good tired and I would definitely do it all over again.

Still smiling,

I Can Feel the Excitement!

The Republican National Convention is coming to Cleveland Ohio next week. I'm happy to say I will be volunteering all week. Due to the recent world events, I am a bit nervous. Security is tight, but everyone must always be aware. If you see something SAY SOMETHING!

I'm sure I will have lots of interesting stories. Ay... I can't wait to meet the delegates, media, politicians, and the many tourists that will be in Northeastern Ohio. Welcome to my state.

Welcome to Ohio!!
