This is one of the 10 people who won a chance to be back stage at the Democratic National Convention while Obama takes the stage...I can't even explain what this means to me... that this women, and her particular issues will be listened to on that historical night... Holly Miowak Stebing of Anchorage, Alaska
Holly, a 20-year-old Alaska Native Inupiaq, is spending her summer break from Stanford University at the First Alaskans Organization interviewing native elders about their experiences with segregation. Holly is passionate about improving healthcare access for Native Americans, and protecting Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from drilling. The 2008 presidential election is Holly's first as a voter. She says: "This was the first campaign I felt I needed to support. I don't have a lot of money, but I donate what I can because I believe in [Barack]." She will attend the convention with her mother who is the first Native American woman to pass the Alaska bar.
Is there more reason to love this man? This campaign? I mean, it's not like he's supporting Native Issues
