“The best part of the diversity of our group was the opportunities it created to learn from each other. Because we were each different, it allowed us each to be experts on our own experiences.”
“Women can be the future of politics, all sorts of women.”
“I realize how important it is for women to get to the table to represent our collective voice.”
“I was going to pursue nonprofit work, but now I’m running for office.”
