In exciting news, I am honored and humbled to have made this year's 30 Under 30 list from Red Alert Politics. The Red Alert Politics fourth annual “30 Under 30” list highlights young, right-of-center people who are making a difference on their campuses and in their communities. The people on this list were selected for their passion, their dedication to conservative principles even in the face of opposition, and for their influence across the country.

It's a nice reflection and I am in very good company on this list.  My favorite portion of the interview:

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

I want the conservative movement to put our strong message of prosperity and personal freedom to work to recruit more people from every walk of life. I hope to inspire more minorities to step up and get involved in the conservative movement. I’ve experienced racism, death threats, and strong vitriol because of my passion for conservative politics. No one should have to go through that. I hope that in 10 years we won’t have to convince our opponents that it’s okay to be a Latina conservative.

Our beliefs resonate because we can actually show how the free market equates to a better life. However, the way we present our message needs some finesse. You can have the strongest, most well-researched message brought to the table by a very qualified candidate, but if you don’t present it in a way that embraces others and actively listens to the audience then the movement won’t inspire passion, which is what we need.
