Meeting The President & The Inaugural Staff Ball


In part one of my inauguration experience, I highlighted moments from the 2013 inauguration ceremony on January 21st, 2013. The next day on Tuesday January 22nd, I attended a White House Tour and the Inaugural Staff Ball. As a 2012 campaign staff member, I was invited to attend various activities throughout the week.

The White House Tour

This was the second time I toured the White House. I toured the East Wing in December and viewed all of the beautiful Christmas decorations. This time was different, yet still wonderful. I actually met President Barack Obama during a surprise visit.

We’re having a great little conversation.

He said, “I’m proud of you.” And I said, “I’m proud of you!”

Later that day I attended the Inaugural Staff Ball. It was held on Tuesday January 22nd for all of us Obama Alumni that worked on the 2008 & 2012 campaigns. Many campaign staffers came from across the country to attend this event.

Here are some pics of the Inaugural Staff Ball below:

This is a snapshot of the huge crowd of about 4,000 staffers.

I had an amazing time during all of the festivities and I’m glad I could share it with the Black Bloggers Connect family. This is just a small number of photos from the inauguration celebration. Stay tuned for the BBC video photo journal that will feature many more pictures.

Best wishes,

  1. If not already in marketing through social media, then you are losing
    a lot of potential buyers or readers. What they are not realizing, is
