Jackline Oluoch can’t vote in the U.S. – but that hasn’t kept her from participating in the presidential election.

The Kenya native is a volunteer with Harlem for Obama. She recently joined the group on a voter-registration drive in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.

“I like to convince people who have power to vote in this country to vote,” said Oluoch, 29, moved to the U.S. two and a half years ago to pursue a masters degree in health policy at New York University.
