What it's like to meet the President

If you think you're never going to win a chance to go backstage to meet President Obama, I need to tell you something: That's what I thought too.

When I got the phone call to tell me my name had been selected, I was floored. It wasn't long before my husband and I were getting on a free flight to D.C. to meet the President face-to-face.

The President was so warm and genuine–he wanted to know all about me and my husband. Talking with him completely reaffirmed my commitment to keep fighting for what is important. And the photo of the three of us is one of my favorite things to show off.

When I got home, all my friends wanted to know: What is it like to meet President Obama? Here's the truth—it felt like meeting an old friend. I'm here to tell you that if you're still on the fence, you should go for it right now. If I could go again, I'd do it in a heartbeat—heck, I'm going to throw my name in too, just in case.

Anyone who adds their name to help with the final push on health care enrollment is automatically eligible to win. Chances are, you were probably planning to help out anyway. This is a pretty amazing bonus.
