On Monday me and a couple of friends got the chance to volunteer and the White House Easter Egg Roll. Over 1,000 people enter the raffle to volunteer every year, so the fact that we were chosen together was great. When we arrived to check in for our positions we were pretty sure we would spend the day directing people on where to line up and what they could and could not have on the lawn. You know, regular volunteer stuff. By the end of the day, we had made it on to the South Lawn of the White House!
Being on the lawn was indescribable. It was so beautiful! I had personally never even been to the outside gates of the White House, so being so close to it was surreal. Through out the day Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Shaq, Lala Anthony, the cast of Blackish, some ladies of The Real, Trevor Jackson, and many other celebrities enjoyed the Easter Egg Roll along with thousands of patrons. There were games for kids, performances, fun characters from kids' favorite shows, and so many other things to do. Over all it was such a fun event to be a part of. Hopefully I'll get the opportunity to enjoy it again next year! Check out some pictures below!
