I just wanted to give a note of introduction. As most of us, I have many titles in my life. One of the ones that I am most proud of is American. I am a first generation American, in fact. I was told often as a child how lucky I was to be an American. I grew up with a great sense of pride in this country and the freedoms it provides. My parents left a land that offered little opportunity to come to a country that offered anyone who was willing to work hard a promise of the "American Dream".
While I did pay attention to politics for the majority of my life, I realized several years back that I needed to become more involved. Shortly after President Obama took the oath of office I started blogging. My goal is to write from the heart about what it is like to be a conservative surrounded by liberals, in the suburbs of Washington, DC.
I have a background in direct marketing and fundraising. I firmly believe that we, as Americans, can make a real difference in the world. Not by force, but by giving from our hearts.
I write my own blog, just a conservative girl, and I contribute at PotLuck as well. I write about culture and the hypocrisy I see everyday coming from the left. Especially as it pertains to conservative women and minorities.
I hope you will find my posts thought provoking, interesting, and maybe you will learn a little something too.
I look forward to hearing feedback from the readers.
