Like many young people at the time in this country, Yohannes points out that the inspiring moment for him came following the election, where one of the high points was the election of Obama as a Senator. We were a relatively small team.

We became a part of the communities we lived in, and we built a sense of family with our teammates. And what was the most memorable moment of working for President Obama at the White House?
But the best memories are either when we moved the needle in a way that did some good in the world, or simple moments of camaraderie with teammates. In fact the best part of my job is the team that he put around him that I have had the chance to work with, and became friends with.

What I really enjoy about the job is being surrounded by people who are as committed to the work as you are, and are going the extra mile — it gives you the strength to do so yourself.
Only a certain percentage of the day works out as you assumed, and the challenges range from dealing with a natural disaster to working in support of a priority item on the legislative docket; not having a template makes it exciting. There is also the challenge of losing time with family and friends.
I definitely wish I had seen more of my family. That puts whatever challenges we face — however daunting they may be — into context. I think an important way for my generation to honor our parents and the foundation they have created for us is to be active, engaged citizens here in America.
Our parents moved to a new country, in most cases knowing no one, having nothing, and speaking little English.
