What a journey the last 10 months have been for me. After a rigorous application process last year, I was honored to have been selected as one of eight Republican women across the state of Arizona to participate in the Dodie Londen Excellence in Public Service Series. A truly life changing experience. While in Washington DC, our executive director Kim Owens explained that we needed to select a representative among us to give the speech at graduation. I was stunned to have even heard my name as a nominee. So honored and humbled to have been selected. Below you will find the speech that I gave, as well as a very bumpy recording of the speech.
