NeW Senior Spotlight: Kelsey from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill

May 14, 2010 | NeW Staff

Today, NeW honors Kelsey Jackson, a recent graduate from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.  Kelsey was the Founding President of the NeW Chapter at Chapel Hill.  She founded the first NeW chapter in the state, and now NeW has expanded to a total of four chapters in North Carolina.  Congratulations, Kelsey, and thank you for your commitment to NeW and helping expand NeW so broadly in your home state!

How Long have you been involved in NeW?
The past 2 semesters
Did you hold any Leadership Positions?
Founding President, 2009-2010
What has been the most rewarding experience during your involvement in NeW?
The good feeling of finally having a conservative organization for women at UNC.
What is something you learned in your NeW Book Club?
I’ve learned so much about how to respond to feminist ideologies that my professors speak of and that are so commonly promoted on UNC’s campus. 
Do you plan to stay involved in the conservative movement and/or politics after graduation?  If so, how?
Yes, I do not know how quite yet. I was a political science major – so in the political realm somehow.
What advice would you leave to younger members of NeW?
Stay positive and don’t be afraid to take a stand for the conservative beliefs and ideals you have! You will be so surprised at how many other women agree with you!
And some special remarks from fellow NeW in NC Leader, Anna Beavon, from Meredith College: 
“Kelsey has been a huge inspiration.  I have greatly enjoyed getting to know her over the past year.  Her sassy attitude and gumption is energizing.  I cannot wait to see where she goes next.”

Opinion: Redefining the right: this is what a conservative looks like (Campus Reform)

How dare I, a twenty-year-old woman, stray from the left’s doctrine that women must conform to a single way of thinking? “So, you hate all women?” I froze. It was freshman year, and I had just “outed” myself as a conservative for the first time at college. “[Since] I ‘came out’ as a conservative,...
