What was the biggest factor in your success?

The biggest factor to success was doing the small things to the best of my ability, with full faith in God that everything I do is part of His plan. There are plenty of people who want to gloss over the small tasks and do the glamorous things. You’ll stick out and gain respect if you take on the small things.

What advice would you give to other millennials?

My advice to other millennials is simple: be principled. Washington, D.C. is filled with people who will compromise their principles in order to win politically. The conservative movement needs more principled millennials involved in politics standing in the gap.

Does the GOP have a future and why?

The GOP only has a future if they reverse course and fight for cultural values like life, marriage, and immigration. Choosing not to fight on these issues has left a vacuum that the left has been continuously filling. If the GOP continues not to fight on these issues, the future looks dim.
