Passion for politics
“I am pursuing this passion for politics that I have,” she told The Hindu. “I became involved in service and advocacy-related activities initially, and when the time came to be involved in the election process, I jumped right on board. I got into the Clinton campaign, and went door-to-door canvassing in my area. I was able to encourage people to come out and vote,” Ms. Palaniappan, a huge fan of Hillary Clinton, the first woman presidential candidate of the Democratic Party, said. She has met Ms. Clinton four times through the current campaign cycle. She was one of the four delegates elected by the district convention directly to the national convention that allowed her to bypass the election at the state level. It was her one-minute speech at the district convention that put her on the path to DNC.
