I’m a proud millennial conservative Latina. Why? Conservatism is empowering. At first glance, many people may look at this in total confusion. However, what many don’t realize is that Conservatism respects everyone. It values hard work, encourages self-respect, and aims to protect all so that we can have the opportunity to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I’m a conservative because it inspires me to be patriotic and of course, a “Girlboss.” I only wish for a country that continues to produce many future generations of strong female leaders. And NeW is a stepping stone to making this dream a reality.
