What was the biggest factor in your success?

People often ask about challenges of being a black Republican. My answer is always the same: I wouldn’t be able to do those things if my family didn’t support me. My relatives, even those who disagree with me politically, make every single effort to support me. My family is also made up of my close friends, who provide much-needed emotional support, as well as mentors who never fail to help me in my decision-making process.

What advice would you give to other millennials?

Boundaries don’t exist. Allow your ideas to be challenged, surround yourself with people of different backgrounds, and accept the reality that there are seven billion people who all live their lives differently from yours. There is absolutely no excuse for living in an echo chamber anymore. Most importantly, remember to be civil.

Does the GOP have a future and why?

The GOP has a future because we’re being forced to find our center again. We’re currently getting a preview of what a dystopian party would look like. There are many Republicans who are actively choosing to bring back messages of small government and individualism. The Republicans who have decided to advocate for personal liberty, free market economics in business and trade, and constitutional reforms like criminal justice reform will bring us back to our roots. We began as abolitionists, and we shall continue to free people from the dangers of collectivism and authoritarianism.
