While growing up in the deep south, I was raised with many conservative ideals. I was taught from a young age about individual empowerment and traditional American values, and I continue to hold each close to my heart. I am most proud to be a conservative because, although I was raised in an environment in which conservatism is common, I feel as though I have grown both politically and personally through these values. I form many aspects of my life around these political views and try to be the best American citizen possible. Regardless of how I was raised, I appreciate an environment in which I can develop my own political views. Organizations such as NeW have helped me develop this strong base of values that I plan to take with me through life and stand up for as a proud conservative.
