1. How did you hear about NeW?
After declaring a politics major earlier this year, it seemed fitting to locate an organization that I could gain experience from to further develop my career aspirations. I chatted with friends about different options and searched for opportunities online until I ran into a 30-under-30 profile of NeW Founder Karin Agness. A quick click brought me to NeW’s website and after that, I was sold.
2. Why were you first interested in interning with NeW?
I initially felt drawn to NeW for the sheer fact that I could work from campus on my own schedule and still play an important role in advancing the ideas of liberty on the national stage. Furthermore, the fact that NeW is a smaller-scale organization looking for passionate young people to help with institutional advancement could not be more exciting. It emboldens interns to advance their skills in journalism, political analysis, and networking, while also spreading NeW’s mission to empower women around the country. Who wouldn’t want to do that?
3. What do you hope to gain from your internship?
My hope is to cultivate a deeper understanding of the American conservative movement, connect with other women across the country who have a shared vision about the basic characteristics of our country, and enhance my influence as a journalist, speaker, and young innovator with a desire to lead the United States in a better direction.
4. Why do you think NeW is important?
NeW rightly combats the modern progressive notion that because genders are equal they are somehow interchangeable. This is an organization that aims to usurp radical feminism and the inevitably of women relying on the U.S. government to provide for their families and determine their success. By providing opportunities for women to discuss American conservatism, NeW strives to elevate the dignity of women as educated, prosperous people who are not bound to be modern liberals just because popular belief says they’re uncompassionate otherwise.
