BX native meets Obama during prestigious fellowship

A Bronx native recently got to meet President Barack Obama.



After attorney Randy Abreu graduated law school, he was chosen to become a fellow for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute working in the nation's capital.



Only 21 young Hispanic leaders from across the nation are invited to join the fellowship.



It also allowed him meet some of the country's top leaders, including Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro and President Barack Obama.



"President Obama is the smoothest guy you'll ever meet. He is a super smooth talker, really inspirational speaker," he says.



Abreu will be spending the next several months in the Bronx as he seeks different job opportunities, but says he is not ruling out a political career in the future.
