'I want to go to sleep knowing I did everything I could to change the world'

Symone D. Sanders says she’s like all young people: She wants to change the world. And the best way she knows how is politics.

“Politics touches every single avenue of life,” she says. “Education. Health. If you like to be able to go to the grocery store and get affordable groceries in your neighborhood—that’s all politics.”

Sanders is the national press secretary for Vermont senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. She says she believes in him because he’s having the same conversations she has with her friends about what matters.
