2020 has been a year of change, trial, and challenges. Amidst all of this, members of the Future Female Leaders Network have accomplished so much. From starting a family to changing careers, conservative women have done it all.  I asked the Network to share their biggest accomplishments of this year. Here is what they said:

  • Joined FFL, became Vice-Chair of TXFCR, started several conservative organizations on campus because my campus didn’t have any, became a part of GenZ GOP organization on the digital team, became a TPUSA ambassador, worked for Congressman McCaul, and an ambassador for Dan Crenshaw. Symphony, Texas

  • I graduated from San Jose State University with a BS in Economics and minor in Political Science. I also completed my application to graduate school.Brianna, California

  • I graduated law school and passed the bar exam on the first try with a brand new online format and having the bar exam delayed twice. Kimberly, Ohio

  • I had a goal to hit $100k net worth by the time I turned 30. I ended up hitting it before my 28th birthday in March. Marisa, Indiana

  • My biggest accomplishment this year, besides not losing my mind in quarantine, was writing a middle grade novel. The idea came to me, I sat down and actually wrote it, and I am really proud of that.Aryssa, Washington DC

  • I graduated law school in May, and I’ve always hoped to be an integral part of the Liberty movement. In December, an amicus brief that I was in charge of researching and writing was filed at the Supreme Court. I never imagined that I could start making an impact this early.Stacy, South Dakota

  • I graduated with my master’s and got an amazing job in my field. I also  contracted on a townhome to close in February 2021!Jordan, Virginia

  • After my old company closed my department, I took it on as my own business. Now I’m running a book restoration business from home and have about three or more months worth of work.Kim, Arizona

  • Since 2016, I’ve wanted to move up to Northern Virginia to be close to Washington DC and the political atmosphere. This year I made that happen! After a rocky start to a year with a car accident that led to me making a decision to finally leave a job I was not happy in. I was able to get a new and amazing job in fundraising at a political non-profit. I have loved every second of it, and my goal of living close to Washington DC finally came true!Aly, Virginia

  • I moved to DC to start my career and officially start adulting. That led me to get invited to the White House, meet wonderful leaders, make the greatest friends in the conservative movement, and even get my work published. I also met my wonderful boyfriend, who supports my ambitions and seeks the Lord with me.Frances, Virginia

  • I’m proud to say that I graduated a year early with my Bachelors degree in Business Administration. I also got to do a lot of work in conservatism, including work on a local campaign, and I’ve finally bought my own domain for my blog, Young Patriot Rising. Hannah, Florida

  • I started my Master of Public Administration at Bowling Green State University. All glory to God that for the first time in my academic career I have a 4.0 GPA! Emily, Ohio

  • My biggest accomplishment of the year is I got an early promotion! I worked so hard for this and I’m glad my hard work paid off, especially during COVID. Francesa, New York

  • I accomplished my goal of becoming completely debt free in 2020. This meant making big chunks of payments towards my student loans throughout the year and though it wasn’t always easy, I made it happen! It feels amazing and I am proud of myself. Rachel, Delaware

  • I started my dream job and left a 7 year toxic relationship in the process. My drive and ambition was always an issue and that should have been a red flag from the beginning. I have been trying to leave for over a year but emotional abuse is such a deep rooted weed. I am so insanely happy now and proud of where I am. You don’t realize what weight you were carrying until it’s gone.Kailey, Maryland

  • The beginning of 2020 came with the hardest mental health struggle I have ever had to face. So, my biggest accomplishment in 2020 has definitely been learning to understand my mental health. Covid quarantine gave me the time I needed to help myself and to learn about the importance of maintaining mental health. You gotta be kind to your mind! Katie, Illinois

  • My biggest accomplishment of 2020 was becoming the NJ State Chair for YAL! It all began late September when my Regional Director reached out to me & asked if I wanted to become a State Chair. I knew it was a big leap of faith & I took the risk. Within my first 2 months as a State Chair I recruited 25 people, led the Northeast in phone banking by 1,008 calls, held events with Guest Speakers from Mises, and attended my first Liberty Candidate Academy. By taking on this new role in my life, I have found my inner voice & discovered that I am a true leader.Sara, New Jersey

  • Finally figured out what I want to do with my life – help Republican women run for office. Started a new job that is going to help me make the connections I need to do so.Mary Catherine, Missouri

  • I have always struggled with insecurities of feeling like I’m not good enough. After about a year of self doubting myself out of it, I finally started a podcast. Instagram disabled three of my accounts thanks to conservative censorship and that was the push I needed to start. Thanks, Big Tech. Danni, Oklahoma

  • My biggest accomplishment of 2020 was graduating from Texas Tech University and receiving a job offer in U.S Senator Ted Cruz’s state office! I never imagined I would have the opportunity to work for a U.S. Senator so quickly after college. I am humbled, honored and truly blessed for this during these unprecedented times of 2020!  Sarah, Texas

Conservative women have shown that no matter what life throws your way, you can overcome and be successful. I want to congratulate everyone who has accomplished huge things in the middle of a global pandemic this year. 2020 may have been tough, but conservative women are tougher.
