Why are you proud to be a woman?
I’m proud to be a woman because my mother is a woman.
What are your future goals and aspirations?
I want to graduate and go to grad school, where I will study communications and public policy. Afterwards, I want to work for the Democratic Party on messaging public policy, particularly immigration.
Who is your favorite political woman candidate for the 2012 elections and why?
Tammy Baldwin. She ran a brilliant campaign, and I’m certain it isn’t always fun to be her. She managed to run an issues-centered campaign as an openly gay woman in Wisconsin and defeat a man with high name recognition. That’s impressive.
