Presided over the U.S. House of Representatives today. Not bad for a girl from Detroit that didn’t speak English when I started school & first in my family to graduate high school & college. This was a proud moment & it sank in just a little more that I am serving in Congress. pic.twitter.com/klafYdhcbO
