Throughout the summer, we will be featuring the team here at The Liberty Bell News in our summer series: Clubs & Contributors. We will be highlighting conservative clubs on campus, asking our team members questions, and looking ahead to what next semester entails. Get to know the Editor in Chief at The Liberty Bell News by reading the Q&A below!
1.) Conservative clubs you love on campus:
Turning Point USA at Liberty University, Liberty Students for Life, and the LU Pursuit of Truth.
2.) What is an issue you are praying about for our nation right now?
The most pressing issue I've been praying about is to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in 1973. Abolishing abortion has been my most passionate social issue ever since I can remember, and it is the issue that got me interested in politics in the first place. Regardless of your party affiliation, background, gender, or religion, everyone deserves the most basic human right: the right to life. Sadly, the unborn currently do not have this right in America as 62 million children have been murdered through abortion since it was legalized. A critical Supreme Court case coming up that could change this, however, is Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization. This case could potentially challenge the rulings of pro-abortion cases such as Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Keep praying that our nation will see all human beings as being made in the image of God!
3.) What were some highlights from your last semester?
Last semester I was blessed to be on the Executive Board with Turning Point USA at Liberty as the Co-Events Coordinator. Although COVID-19 regulations made planning activities more challenging, we were able to hold different tabling events. My favorites was the "Kiss Me I'm a Capitalist" themed table for St. Patrick's Day, and a "Change My Mind" table on abolishing the minimum wage. Both tables were great to start conservations with students about the free market!
4.) What would you tell incoming freshmen?
Go to any and all events you can, even if you do not know anyone going or you feel shy. I would have never imagined that going to a few club events on campus last semester with Students for Life and Turning Point USA would spark such a passion in me for politics, but it has. What's more, I got to develop close friendships, been blessed with opportunities to travel, met amazing influences like Abby Johnson, and grew closer to Christ through these clubs.
