The Coolest Kid at Lakewood, Ohio, High School

On 4 November 2012 in Cleveland, Ohio, United States Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, stopped at the My Friends Restaurant before making a campaign appearance in nearby Lakewood, Ohio. As he stood at the cash register to pay for cheesecake and coconut custard pie, a 17-year-old girl, Amira Nasrallah, working there said to him, “You’re going to my high school.” She wanted to attend the political event. Mr. Biden asked her, “Why don’t you ride in my car with me?” She shrieked, “Oh, my God!” Mr. Biden told his aides, “You see this lovely young woman? We’re gonna let her ride with me, in my limo, to the high school.” Nasrallah’s twin brother, Amir Nasrallah, was also invited along. Mr. Biden told Amir, “You go around the other side of the door. That Secret Service agent will let you in.” In an article about this good deed, Shannon Travis wrote, “And with that, the vice president entered the SUV, along with the young woman, her brother and Secret Service, making the young lady perhaps the coolest kid at her high school.”
