Caileigh Scott Says, "HILL YES!"

Caileigh Scott Says, "HILL YES!"

Lifetime Hillary supporter, Caileigh Scott recalls a sixth sense on a special day in 2013, "A friend and I attended the Mexican American Leadership Initiative Awards at USC's Town & Gown, where Hillary Clinton was being honored. Julian Castro introduced her, and while her speech was not a campaign speech, there was just something in the air. We looked at each other, and we knew she was going to run for President, again."

An earlier foreshadowing of Hillary's Presidential campaign came from Caileigh's Mother 20 years ago. When Caileigh was in middle school in 1996, she helped her civics teacher stage a mock Presidential election in the cafeteria during lunch. She voted for Bill Clinton, and later lamented to her mother, "I wish I could vote for President Clinton for real." Her mom set down her copy of Hillary Clinton's It Takes A Village, winked at her, and replied, "Oh, don't worry. You will."

When Hillary officially announced she would run for President in 2016, Caileigh immediately began volunteering in New York. She attended Hillary's campaign launch on Roosevelt Island, and continues to attend events. She has done street canvassing, visibility, and volunteering at headquarters in Brooklyn. But on the day to day, she wears Hillary swag to show her support, loud and proud.

"I proudly wear my Hillary shirts and buttons, and engage people in my life about why I support her, as often as I can."
