Today was the day I, Theresa Twum, got to vote. Being the only person in my family qualified to vote makes me feel so special. Being my first time voting, I had no idea what to expect. I thought about how long the lines were going to be and about the time I would have to wait in line. To my surprise the lines were very long but moved very quickly. By the time I knew it, I was ready to slide my ballot into the voting box. On my way to TORCH, all I could think about was how lucky and blessed I am to be an American. Not everyone in the USA gets to vote, so for me it was a big deal. It feels so good to be an American when it comes to Election Day because your vote does count.
