Audrey Scagnelli served as National Press Secretary — the youngest in recent history — for the 2016 Republican National Convention. She has appeared on Fox Business, MSNBC, ABC and other national news outlets, and has been quoted in several national publications, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. Earlier this year, Scagnelli managed regional press for the New Day for America PAC, which supported Governor John Kasich, and before that, the CARLY for America PAC, which supported Carly Fiorina. Prior to working on the 2016 election cycle, she served as Press Secretary for House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers.

While a student at The George Washington University’s School of Media & Public Affairs, Scagnelli founded College & Cook Magazine, the first national food magazine for college students. It attracted a readership of over 13,000 and later partnered with USA Today College. She is a proud former Congressional Page and a native of Miami, Florida.

What was the biggest factor in your success?

There are so many individuals who have been gracious enough to give me their time and advice. I’m thankful to the mentors and family members who have believed in me and have encouraged me to go after my dreams — even if they seemed out of reach. I only hope I can pay it forward one day!

What advice would you give to other millennials?

“Diligence is the mother of good luck.” Wise words from Benjamin Franklin. Politics is a fast-paced industry in which young people can really contribute if they seize the moment and take any task that comes their way. Keep a positive attitude and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it, that’s what I try to do! 

Does the GOP have a future and why?

Young leaders need a seat at the table. We are a nation of opportunity and promise — we need to continue to be the party that understands what the American Dream is all about. If we can promote an inclusive environment of possibility and uphold the rights of the individual above the bureaucratic red tape, the future will be bright.
