: Known for her embellished hats, Congresswoman Frederica Wilson is serious about serving her constituents. The Miami, Florida native has worked at nearly every level of government, from the Miami-Dade County School Board and Florida House of Representatives to the Sunshine State’s Senate. In 2010, Wilson won her Congressional bid and embarked on the next phase of her career. A former educator, Wilson adamantly believes in the importance of investing in young people. She’s the founder of the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project
, a program aimed at helping at-risk young men beat the odds and succeed. She also led two fact-finding missions — and holds weekly demonstrations
—to Nigeria after 219 school girls were abducted by terrorist group, Boko Haram. “People know me as a voice for the children,” Wilson told the SunSentinel
. And if she wins another term in November. Wilson will no doubt continue to work on behalf of the most vulnerable.
