“It was an honor to meet the President”

Teresa with President Obama after winning the Backstage with Barack promotion

Teresa recently got the opportunity of a lifetime – the chance to meet President Obama backstage before a grassroots event in Miami. After hearing about the Backstage with Barack promotion, she entered, never imagining she'd be chosen.

"It was an experience I'll remember for the rest of my life. It was just so much fun, and I felt so exhilarated. He was so real, and so friendly. He even leaned in for a hug."

She brought along a copy of The Audacity of Hope and the President signed it for Teresa's children too.

This family isn't done yet though. Teresa has signed up for more volunteer shifts, and her husband and kids are getting involved, too.

With 17 days to go, they are determined to make sure Florida pulls through for President Obama.
