Why It Makes Sense to Have a Young Latino in the White House

Join the Captain Morgan #Under35Potus movement!

Millennials have built some of the largest companies in the world (take a look at the Facebook and Airbnb founders), brought beautiful art to thousands (you go, Misty Copeland!) and inspired millions with a single defiant action. Now we’re ready for the next step – “la Casa Blanca.” Here’s why:

Dear Mr. President and member of Congress,

It’s time to make a new step forward – a proposition by the people and for the people. As Latinos quickly become the largest racial or ethnic minority in the country, we think it’s about time a representative of the future of what the U.S. will become is chosen as the next #POTUS.

What better leader than to choose one from both the largest segment of the population – a millennial Latino? Here are reasons why age is nothing but a number for Latinos under 35 that can definitely take the head seat as the leader of the free world:

We like to tech, tech, tech from our head to our (robotic) toes

Latinos are pioneers and explorers

Finally, Latinos are used to being explorers and overcoming obstacles in search for our dreams. We learned from the best – our parents. Many of our parents have crossed rivers, deserts and more to reach the American dream. If you think a Latino millennial president will want to throw in the towel, we can always rest assured their mom or dad will be there to say, “Ponte las pillas!”
