If someone would have told me five years ago that I’d be co-directing a website with a state representative, connecting with progressive women leaders from around the country, and going to conferences to speak on young women in politics in 2014, I would have started laughing hysterically. But this is my life today.
Some people are born into politics, but not me. I never grew up sitting around the television with my family watching poll numbers roll in, going door-to-door during hot summer days, or making hundreds of phone calls to help elect candidates. I had to create my own path.
