Cory Booker - March 2012
“What will this generation be known for? The Internet? When you’re gone, what kind of heat, energy will you give off?”
“Life isn’t always about the big moment, fight, election … it’s about the choice everyday to accept conditions as they are or to take responsibility for change,” Booker says.
Currently in his second term as mayor of Newark, Booker’s political career began in 1998 as he served as Newark’s Central Ward councilman for four years. He has been recognized in numerous magazines and media outlets, including being named to the 2011 Time 100, the magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
