Fly Guy: Reggie Love

Well, little is known of this week’s Fly Guy Reggie Love. I have chosen to feature him because men like him are often overlooked and simply passed by. As women, we should never hesitate to meet new people and step outside of our “type”. Now, aesthetically, Reggie isn’t someone that I may date, but he seems like a hard worker and a great man. (You know they always look great on It doesn’t hurt that he kicks it with President Obama 24/7. Now that’s pretty fly huh?

Here’s a little background info Check it! He graduated with a degree in political science and public policy at Duke University. He was a forward for the Duke Blue Devils basketball team and played wide receiver for the Duke Football team. So talented ain’t he? Lol.. Now this is the part that I love, Reggie applied for an internship on Capitol Hill in 2006 for a position in Obama's Senate office. He was hired with the title "deputy political director." He was there in the beginning. Like dating a geeky baller in high school and he becomes a gorgeous NFL/NBA player… I He then transitioned to Obama's aide. In this role, he had to anticipate any and all of Obama's needs. As part of a tradition, Love and Obama played basketball every day there was a primary during the 2008 presidential election. Love is still an aide to Obama and kicks it in the White House. And ABC News just named him "Person of the Week" on January 23, 2009. (Oh, by the way, he’s only 26!)

I like the fact that Reggie didn’t just jump on the band wagon with President Obama, he saw greatness even back then. That’s what we Fly Girls have to master! Seeing greatness in places that others do not. This allows us to find great treasures!
Yaaaaaaaaaay Fly Guy Reggie!

Go Reggie. When I saw him featured on CNN it almost brought a tear to my eye. Hardworking black men like him need to be showcased in the media more often.
So proud of him!
