If I were the President of the United States, I would change...


We hear endless opinions about politics from adults, but the voices of our youth are often missing.

Let's change that.


Calling all youth (under 18)


Download the template and write/draw what you would change if you were the President of the United States.


Share a photo of your page on social media with #ifiwerethepresident. 


Please mail your page to: 

If I Were The President
PO Box 31412
San Francisco, CA 94131

Physical copies are preferred, but if you're unable to mail, please email a photo of your page to mail@ifiwerethepresident.org.


These messages will be delivered to the White House in 2020 around the next Presidential election to make a strong, poetic statement about a future worth fighting for together.

About me


My name is Anna Sergeeva and I'm an artist based in San Francisco. My previous work includes The Compliment Project which spread nearly half a million compliments in eight languages across the world. 

Looking through my childhood drawings, I found a worksheet from when I was seven years old. Prompted by "If I were the President of the United States, I would change...", I wrote "that every family has a home."


Media kit available here for sharing this project on social, blogs, etc. 

Please contact me with any questions.
