As the campaign ended and I began lining up the assets necessary to launch a bid for my high school’s sophomore class presidency, I was basking in the afterglow of the greatest accomplishment in my life thus far. By rallying students, petitioning, and public speaking, I had led a freshman student effort that worked with parents and a handful of teachers to stop the planned division of Lewisville’s Class of 2014 across multiple campuses. Virtually everyone told us the endeavor would fail, but yet it had succeeded. Upon accomplishing this goal I decided that I had found my purpose in life, and that is to fight for my community and give those people a voice that otherwise would not. By entering law school, working in the private sector then running for a governorship, Senate, and even higher, I can combine my love of public policy, politicking, leadership, strategic planning, and problem solving to make better the lives of those I care about. Maintaining a dynamic workforce and global climate disruption will be the greatest geostrategic challenges of this century, and I want to have a part in finding a solution for America that will ensure our strength for a very long time. Especially in this century with a Chinese superpower that will inevitably come in contention with American interests, the upcoming few decades will be a grand geostrategic game that, because of its economic nature as opposed to ideological, will be greatly more complex and multifaceted than the Cold War.
