We have been so grateful to have Jaycee Tyler on our team this semester as our Spring 2024 Chapters Intern. Jaycee is a senior at Texas Tech University.
Q: How did you hear about NeW?
I was recruited by Adelyn Spikes during my sophomore year at Texas Tech. She reached out to me on Instagram asking me to join the chapter’s book club. I was in need of a community that aligned with me politically, and there it was in my Instagram DMs!
Q: Why is NeW important?
NeW is important because us girls NEED community! Not only that, but we need a community that will challenge and encourage us as we go through college and our early careers. It seems that everything is so political these days; that means we should be confident in what we believe and be able to speak to others about it. NeW chapters are providing that support for women all across the nation.
Q: What is the most important conservative issue in your opinion?
There is an attack on families in this country. By the Left, by the Devil, by Hollywood, and by social media. Traditions and support systems are crucial for everyone, not just Conservatives. That is why Conservatives need to step up in protecting school-age children’s innocence, the value of two-parent homes, and the ability to protect one’s family against all kinds of threats.
Q: If you could offer advice to college students, what would it be?
Master the art of shifting your perspective. It is important to be able to look big picture and the small picture. Details matter, but if you are constantly worried about the little things in life, you will miss the big. For example, the major you choose may have an impact on your future, but not as big of an impact as the people you choose to surround yourself with.
Q: Why were you interested in interning for NeW?
I wanted to participate in the NeW Chapters internship because I have loved my experience leading the TTU chapter and wanted to continue helping other women across the nation! I am blessed to go to a fairly Conservative university, not a luxury many of our students have, and am excited to aid others in running their chapters. Additionally, I am curious to learn more about all of the behind-the-scenes work of nonprofits like NeW!
Q: What do you hope to gain from your internship?
This semester I hope to gain a better understanding of the work NeW and other nonprofits participate in as well as grow my writing and communication skills and expand my political and professional knowledge. Finally, I want to continue to expand my network with the amazing students and staff of NeW.
