When did you know that you were a conservative? How did you get to where you are today?

“I started to realize my values aligned with conservatism sometime during high school. I got where I am today by learning to listen to the input and advice of people with more experience.”

What advice do you have for young conservative women today?

“I think it’s really important for young conservative men and women to read books, not just news reports. Reading full books, both fiction and nonfiction, adds so much depth to your perspective as a person involved in politics in any capacity. Young conservative women in particular should focus primarily on being an effective ambassador for their values on a local level– in their workplaces, with their friends, in their classrooms. That’s where hearts and minds are really changed.” 

What value do you think groups like NeW add to the public discourse?

“Groups like NeW give the many women whose beliefs subvert liberal orthodoxy the resources to organize and amplify their voices, and the recognition that supporting radical feminism is not their only option.” 

How do you combat liberal bias in the media?

“Liberal bias in the media is combated by taking on other biases in the media, namely cultural. For the most part, powerful mainstream newsrooms are headquartered in New York and Washington, and the geography alone leads to a fundamental misunderstanding between journalists and a lot of the country they attempt to cover. That is a long and frustrating pattern to correct, but for now, conservatives are doing a good job using their own outlets to fight back.”
