When Congresswoman Sanchez entered the room she immediately shook every single person’s hand and asked us our names. A handshake can tell you a lot about a person. After shaking Loretta Sanchez’s hand I immediately felt that the interview would be a lively one. She brought a different feeling to the room.

I found her to be very insightful.
