What was the biggest factor in your success?

The biggest factor in my success has been to challenge myself everyday to go the extra step. I have a reputation of going beyond my role to deliver results. It’s not about stepping on people’s toes or disregarding the hierarchy within an organization… rather it’s about pushing the boundaries to make things happen. I would rather beg for forgiveness than ask for permission. Our generation has challenged the status quo, and by doing that we can find value in opportunities that organizations often overlook.

What advice would you give to other millennials?

My first piece of advice to millennials, especially young women, is to become a gun owner. It is the most liberating, empowering thing you could do for yourself! Second, wake up early. It’s the secret to a successful work-life balance. Third, give 110% to every job no matter how small the responsibilities. You never know the people you will impress and the doors that might open up for you along the way. Fourth, our future prosperity and freedoms are not secure, but we have the power to make a difference if we’re involved. Lastly, find a partner in your life that supports and fuels your ambitions.

Does the GOP have a future and why?

I recently wrote an article about the future of the GOP and our need to move away from being the party of “NO” and become the party of possibility. The GOP must focus on solving the burdens created by previous generations. Young people and minorities will become the new face of the GOP if we have honest, unfiltered conversations about the debt, bankrupt entitlement programs, the student loan program, and political correctness. Republicans have the opportunity to present a very different choice for our future by rebranding their message to relate to the life experiences of this generation and by bridging the divide between Washington and the people.
