What was the biggest factor in your success?

I am incredibly lucky to have had a series of brilliant, successful young women for supervisors over the last five years. Each of them trusted I was capable of accomplishing big things and did not hesitate for one second to pull out whatever stops they could think of to help me along my way.

What advice would you give to other millennials?

Ask for what you want in life. People are more willing to help than you might think.

Does the GOP have a future and why?

I have no idea whether the Republican Party has a future, but I also don’t think it matters very much. Politicians will go where the people lead them. If you want to change policy, the way to do it is by influencing public opinion. First you win the argument, then you win the vote.
