  •  Thanks for pointing out Kesha Ram (1+ / 0-)

    Kesha serves Burlington’s Old North End, Hill Section, and University District in the Vermont House of Representatives. At 26 years old, she is currently the youngest legislator serving in Vermont.

    With a mother from Illinois and a father from India, she was born in Los Angeles on August 2, 1986. Her mother, a Jewish woman whose family came through Ellis Island fleeing persecution abroad, was the board president of their local food cooperative. Her father, immigrating to America to receive a college education after his Hindu family survived the Partition of India, was a small business owner. They taught their three children, of which Kesha is the youngest, to embrace and celebrate diversity and equality; to embody fierce self-determination and passion for their beliefs; and, most of all, to give back to the community from which they gained so much.
