What was the biggest factor in your success?

The most consequential factor in my work is prayer. I go often to Our Lady with St. Josemaría Escrivá’s intercession.

What advice would you give to other millennials?

Find a mentor.

Does the GOP have a future and why?

The Republican Party will only have a future if it rejects populism and nativism, and returns to its principles of limited government, a strong national defense, traditional values, and free enterprise.
