My Trip to the White House

Story and photos by Sean Beach.

MARCH 21, 2016: On Saturday, February 27, 2016 I had the chance to visit where the president lives. I went with a program called College Tribe. College Tribe is a program that is STEM-based and is a mentoring program for 3rd-8th grade black boys. We were able to see many things that others haven’t seen and also actually have a chance to see the inside of the White House besides looking on the outside.  We had a great time. We learned about some of the different rooms that were there—like the State Dining Room—that's where the president and his family eat with people from other countries or used when they have events. Other rooms that I was able to visit were the Red, Blue, and Green Rooms which are used for when the president wants to entertain his guests. We had a good time there being able to actually take pictures of the many rooms that were visible to the community. I hope I am able to go again because I really enjoyed myself.
