  • Elena and Paulina's Hillary Blog

    Editor’s Note: The election is over now, but I’d like to highlight another two super-inspirational young people who did so much for Hillary. Although not technically “teens” yet, 12-year-old friends Elena and Paulina worked incredibly hard on Hillary’s campaign in Reno, Nevada. While on the campaign trail, Elena and Paulina kept up a blog, where the two regularly wrote cheery and optimistic posts.
