Upon entering the United States Air Force In 2001, I took an oath to defend the constitution from enemies foreign and domestic. I believe helping the Republican Party with their goals allows me to continue upholding that oath. I applied to become an RLI fellow because I thought it was an opportunity to both help the Republican Party and learn new skills that would help me in become a more effective leader.
While being a part of the RLI Fellowship I met numerous self-motivated and skilled individuals. I hosted debate parties and talked 1 on 1 with individuals in my community about current events while inspiring them to dedicate their efforts in a productive manner to ensure a Republican victory in 2016.
I developed friendships that inspired my wife and I to step out of our normal routine and experience Michigan in ways we never thought possible. I acquired crucial advice from long time business owners of organizations both big and small about how to run a successful operation. There is no doubt that the RLI Fellowship changed my perspective and life in ways that I am already experiencing a positive impact from. I recommend this fellowship to anyone who has a thirst for knowledge and a drive to improve themselves.
