March Member Spotlight
Danielle Rojas, 25
War Town Young Republicans
Danielle is one of those staunch conservatives we all love to know! “I am a republican because the principles in which the party stands by reflect my inner constitution,” she says. “I feel that government assistance should be minimal. I believe the people of this country should try their very best to take care of their needs before using government assistance. Yes hard times come to most everyone, but what makes someone stronger is by bettering themselves on their own and striving to live the true American dream.” Danielle is also a hard believer in our constitutional right to bear arms and that the government should have little regulation that right to own and carry a gun. She proudly exercises her right on a regular basis!
A cool fact about Danielle is that she celebrates Valentine’s Day as her birthday; she also spoils rotten her blood hound and yellow lab!
“If I could have coffee with any historical figure it would be Margaret Thatcher. She was the longest-serving British Prime Minister of the 20th century and is currently the only woman to have held the office. I would love to talk with her and get advice about what it’s like to be a strong and conservative female,” Danielle says. We can only imagine the conversation that would be.
