I am a proud conservative woman because I believe in the fundamental beliefs of conservatives across the country. It was in high school when I first realized that I identified as a conservative. Now in college, adversity is part of daily life on college campuses across the nation. I believe in empowering others and sharing your voice, even if it is the unpopular opinion, but fear of doing so has become commonplace for conservatives. As a conservative, it is my duty to fight to break stereotypes of conservatives and to fight for the country and history our Founding Fathers created so many years ago. Joining NeW has taught me so much about myself and I am grateful for all of the people I have met via our common beliefs and values.
