Keith Maples was raised in a lower income family, but that never stopped him from striving to accomplish his dreams. He worked three jobs one summer to help pay for his college tuition. Before realizing his dreams were in politics, he was accepted into the engineering program and failed out. Despite these hardships, Keith never gave up. He became even more motivated because of his failures. He interned with the Marco Rubio campaign in South Carolina and later joined Pat McCrory’s campaign in North Carolina. His belief in conservative values is strong and shows through as he tries to educate people on what being a conservative really is. He is a member of Turning Point USA as well as College Republicans on his college campus. Keith is a hardworking gentleman who always has a positive outlook on life. He has an amazing heart and treats everyone around him with respect, because he knows what it is like to have nothing.
