Reggie Love

Reggie Love is a unique witness to history, whose introduction to Washington was working in Senator Barack Obama’s mailroom. As “body man” to Obama during his first presidential campaign, Love’s job was to stay one step behind the candidate but think and act three steps ahead during a typical eighteen-hour workday. As President Obama’s personal aide during that momentous first term, Love sat yards from the Oval Office and often spent more time with the President than anyone else. While his experiences were unique, the lessons he learned during his tenure with the President are universal. Persistence. Responsibility. Passion for a cause greater than yourself. In short, maturity.

Reggie’s Session

Lucy Brazier interviews Reggie Love

In this incredible session, Reggie Love shares his unique perspective on what it was like working for the leader of the free world. Beginning with his first interview for a job in the mailroom, Reggie tells Lucy Brazier how he became Obama’s ‘surrogate son’ and explains what life with Obama was really like. How did it feel to keep the President company at every major turning point of his historic first campaign and administration? How do you own up to (temporarily) losing the President’s briefcase? And what were the career highlights? This is a coming of age story. His time with Barack Obama taught Love, who was only 23 when he began working for the then Senator, how persistence and passion can lead not only to success but to a broader concept of adulthood.
