Have you ever wondered what is a Secretary of State? Well I have and since on 4/20/17 my High school will be introducing  The Secretary of State of California Alex Padilla, I wanted to get to know what it is that makes a Secretary of State so important and what makes his job different from all of ours. I have learned the Secretary of State is one of the most important politician’s in your state. They are the ones that usually help run the voting system and keep every single important archive safe for future references. Secretary of State is a senior official of the federal government of the United States of America heading the U.S. Department of State, principally concerned with foreign policy and is considered to be the U.S. government’s equivalent of a Minister of foreign affairs. So overall being a secretary of state is a really important task and a once in a life time chance. But what motivated me the most was when Alex Padilla talked about how his parents worked as a cook and the other one worked as a cleaner but who would have ever thought their son was later going to be a Secretary of state and especially the “Golden State’ of California. That lets you know that nothing is impossible if you try, just keep going for it and sooner or later you will strike gold.
