A Day in the Life: Inside the State of the Union with Cecilia Muñoz

Cecilia Muñoz, the Director of President Obama's Domestic Policy Council, takes over the White House Instagram account to give you a look inside the State of the Union process.

For my team, the 2014 State of the Union process started months ago.

It started with a pile of folders, papers, and a lot of ideas -- from the President, regular people, and policy experts -- that we want this speech and this year to focus on. 

That's our team's job: We take the President's ideas and priorities and we execute the policies that will put them into action.

Today, I took over the White House's Instagram to share a couple shots from my day. Take a look — and if you haven’t already, make sure you let us know you'll be watching next Tuesday.

Ultimately, everything that goes into the President’s address and the work that follows – work that is focused on making life a little better for millions of Americans -- all started, at some point, with a letter to the President or an idea in a binder.

It's a pretty cool job and one I’m honored to have.

If you want to see how it all comes together, make sure you're watching on Tuesday.
