A retired Wednesday tradition here at FFL is honoring strong conservative women in the movement. We call this tradition our #WCW series, or Weekly Conservative Woman series. It’s been a few months since our last article, but this Wednesday, March 2, we’re bringing it back to honor the most deserving of them all, our founder Amanda Owens.
Amanda is a fearless and passionate advocate for conservatism. She embodies what it means to be a woman of grace, poise, class, and ambition. Amanda inspires each of us here at FFL to work hard, be kind, and let our voices be heard. She encourages countless women to go after what they want, and she reminds us daily that even if we may feel alone or small, what we believe, what we stand for, and who we are matters. Amanda reminds us to reach out, to empower others, and to work together. I’ll be bold, but completely honest: Amanda Owens has truly led the charge behind the momentum of young conservative women getting involved with politics. Here at FFL, we admire her, we are inspired by her, and lets be real, we want to grow up to be her. But most importantly, we want to take this article to show her how much we love her, and to thank her for all she has done.
Kayla C. (FFL Cabinet Advisor) “My dearest friend, I am so thankful for every opportunity for growth that you and FFL have been able to provide for me. It’s so crazy to think about the two young women we were when your journey with FFL was just beginning and even crazier to think about how strong our bond became in such a short amount of time while our minds came together to create the FFL Cabinet. From day 1, I knew that being involved with FFL was going to be an exciting adventure, but I had no idea how much I was going to grow to love you, the FFL message, the strong and intelligent women who have joined together to create such a beautiful momentum of the conservative movement, and the impact FFL was going to have on my life. Know how grateful each and every one of us are, because I have YOU to thank for curating my immense passion for the mission of Future Female Leaders and I honestly cannot imagine my life without this organization. In a year we have grown tremendously and the future only gets brighter. Thank you for showing me what hard work and dedication can create. Thank you for being there for me whenever I need an intelligent mind to talk/vent to. Thank YOU for having a huge positive impact on my life. Words cannot describe what a blessing it is to have you in my life. You’re going to change the world. <3”
Robin K. (FFL Contributor) – “FFL has given me so many opportunities and I will forever be grateful. From endless amounts of friends, to support in all aspects of life, and constant motivation to be a better person and work hard for your dreams. Amanda has always been just a message away if I needed anything, she has worked so hard for FFL over the last few years and has done so much for all of us. Thanks for all that you do, Amanda!”
Gabrielle B. (FFL Cabinet Member) “In the past two years that I’ve been a part of the FFL team, Amanda has become more than just my boss. I originally met Amanda through twitter, and when the opportunity came to be a part of her team, I jumped at the chance. While I originally just signed up for the perks of being a sales rep, becoming a writer for the blog and being a part of a group of such amazing and strongly opinionated girls helped me to become a better person and to be more informed about our country. I can’t say enough good things about Amanda and all her hard work. I’m blessed to have her not only as a boss, but as a friend. I can’t wait to see where FFL takes us in the future, but I know that it will be to amazing places and that is due mostly to Amanda. I’m so proud of you and you deserve all the great things that are coming FFL’s way.”
Lauren N. (FFL Contributor) “I know I said a lot of this at convention but I just want to reiterate how much I truly appreciate everything you have sacrificed and everything you have done for the FFL Fam. I never in my wildest dreams expected a response when I applied for FFL and now I can’t remember life before it. You took a chance on me and it has truly changed my life for the better. Your leadership has inspired me and encouraged me to be involved in politics and for that, I am so grateful. I also just want to take a minute to say congratulations. FFL has thrived and grown into a movement that is incredible and that is changing lives. You have put so much work and time into this company and I’m so proud to represent something so monumental and inspiring.  I know that you have worked so hard to make this week possible so, thank you. Thank you for all the late night planning and the days your agenda was overflowing. This week is going to be absolutely perfect and I’m so excited to watch FFL grow during our time at CPAC. You are impacting women like myself in ways that you don’t even realize. The entire FFL fam loves you so much and we want you to know that you’re an inspiration and a role model to all of us. Thank you so much for everything you do, we wouldn’t be the sassy, independent, confident women that we are without you and without FFL. I am so honored to work with you and to watch FFL grow every single day. Stay fearless, be proud.”
Hayden L. (FFL Cabinet Member) “I’ve been following the FFL account since its Future First Lady days, and I am so thankful for its influence in my life. Amanda has been a true role model for young women everywhere and, specifically, in my life. Amanda and the FFL account showed me that it is ok to be strong in my beliefs, voice my opinion, and be fiercely patriotic and unapologetically sassy. FFL has given me an outlet to voice my opinions and for that I am so grateful. FFL has also given me the opportunity to connect with other like minded conservative young women and build strong friendships all over the country. Amanda, thank you for being so passionate and vocal and for creating a movement that I am so proud and honored to stand behind. You have truly changed my life and I cannot thank you enough. We love you!!”
Victoria F. (FFL Contributor) “Stumbling upon FFL my freshman year was one of the best things that ever happened to me. Being at a liberal school I felt alone in my values and lacked a group of like-minded women. I loved Amanda’s tweets and blog posts, frequently retweeting them and laughing to myself in my dorm room. Amanda has given me the courage to express my views, and has been a role model for all young conservative females who are struggling to find their political voice. She is strong, courageous, and combats criticism with the grace of a First Lady. I can only hope that my little sisters have someone like Amanda one day who will encourage them to stay true to their own values.”
Joleen T. (FFL Contributor) – “Although I am new to the FFL family, I’ve loved the website for a while. Seeing Amanda’s hard work and dedication to such a great organization has motivated me to work hard and follow my dreams. The explosion of FFL is a reflection of her dedication and love not only to all Future Female Leaders, but to the Republican Party as a whole. Thank you Amanda!”
Holly M. (FFL Cabinet Member) “In November 2014, I received the amazing news that I was accepted as an FFL Cabinet Member. I couldn’t believe it! The excitement overcame me as well as nerves. Immediately, Amanda accepted me with her kind and unconditional friendship, as well as leadership. Over the past year and a half, I have seen just how raw the political world can be. People can be cruel. People can be heartless. FFL has received some backlash and every time it happens, I want to stand up and defend the company that helped me grow as an individual. No one likes to see their co-workers/basically family get attacked over social media for something as simple as their political values. As these issues come up, Amanda has taught me to let go, to be the bigger person, and always remember that I am a lady who displays nothing but class. She handles any tough situation with class, dignity, and poise. Sometimes I wonder how she does it. All I want in life is to be able to adult as much as Amanda. #GOALS. Not only has Amanda taught me how to be professional and handle myself with grace, she has provided me with trips of a lifetime. Last spring of 2015, she took the entire FFL cabinet to Washington, D.C. Every day, I wake up and think of how much I enjoyed this experience and how close I became to my co-workers as compared to before I got to meet them. I want to also thank her for taking me to CPAC 2016! I’m so excited I could scream. Actually I did when I found out. Not sorry. I truly cannot thank Amanda enough for letting me travel to do what I love. I know that without the influence of FFL, I would not be the person I am today. Thank you for everything you do!”
Reagan R. (FFL Contributor) “When I first followed Future Female Leaders on Twitter, I was drawn in by how easy it was to relate to the tweets, blog posts, and apparel. Last spring, I applied to become a contributor and got the position! It was honestly the first time I was able to speak to so many amazing young women who thought like I did and were as politically involved as I was. The community of women Amanda has created is something that encourages me to stay engaged in politics and educate my friends. Amanda has provided the Conservative movement with something it desperately lacked, an appealing social media platform for young women. I’m so grateful for all that you’ve done (and will do) for us, Amanda!”
Stephanie M. (FFL Contributor) “Amanda, I never thought four three years ago sitting in my college undergrad classes retweeting your FFL tweets would lead me to be part of your amazing organization. I’ve always had a passion for politics and being able to express my views within the FFL community has been an incredible experiment for me.The day I found out I had been selected to be part of the contributor program, had been one of the worst days of my life. I actually remember crying myself to sleep that night. When I rolled over at midnight and checked my e-mail to discover I had been selected to join the FFL team I was so overwhelmed with emotion that I cried happy tears for the first time in a long time. I knew it was a sign that better things were coming. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of something that I’m truly passionate about and give me sense of purpose when I needed it most. FFL has helped me in ways I’ve never expected it to. Thank you for all of your hard work, dedication, passion and love you have for this organization. I know you are going to continue to take this group to unbelievable places and this is only the beginning of many many great things to come.”
Deborah A. (FFL Cabinet Member) “I am so thankful for you and everything FFL has done for not only myself but everyone you have reached. I’ve always told my family I wanted to change the world or be apart of something that did and I’ve realized that FFL is just that. You have changed so many lives already and I can’t wait to see how many more are to come. You give a different name to the GOP, it’s no long just the party of old rich men but new, young, eager and educated women. Thank you for letting me be apart of your movement and helping me to find my own voice in politics.”
Alexa A. (FFL Contributor) “Where do I start with Amanda Owens? She has radically transformed the social media game for young, conservative women. From an anonymous Twitter account to a prodigious movement, Amanda has definitely built an empire. FFL has changed my life and thousands of girls all over the country feel the impact it has made. With a clear vision for where she wanted to take her brand, Amanda crafted an active FFL website, blog, store, and a social media presence that cannot be ignored. Besides being the brains behind FFL, Amanda is an all-around wonderful person. She truly cares about her staff and her readers, and that attentiveness and devotion is rare to find these days. While others tend to remove themselves once they reach success, Amanda has always kept herself grounded, as well as made her staff and readers feel updated and welcomed. Her genuine nature is something to be admired. Overall, it is an honor to work for Amanda. She is a great role model for someone who wants to go far in the political world. While I will never be able to fully repay her for the great opportunities she has given me with FFL, I will always be extremely thankful. I’ve learned to never doubt Amanda Owens and I fully expect her to accomplish even more groundbreaking things in the future. Here’s to the best boss a girl could ask for.”
Caroline C. (FFL Cabinet Member) “I remember following FFL when they were still only at a couple of thousand followers. I remember buying my first FFL shirt and from there, it’s been a full fledged obsession. I was blessed enough to be given the opportunity to become a cabinet member for FFL and I am still thankful for the opportunity. When I met Amanda, it felt like meeting a celebrity who was also my boss but as I got to know her, she was so much more than an authority figure. Amanda is my mentor. Amanda is a dear friend. Amanda pioneered a movement that I couldn’t imagine my life without and created a place where young conservative women can come together and not feel out of place. Amanda is someone we should all aspire to be. Amanda, you’re one of the greatest women I have ever met. You have taught me lessons that I will never forget. You started with a Twitter account and turned it into a company that brings women together. You inspire me every single day to follow my dreams, never back down, and hit the ground running in heels. You have made time for me when I know your schedule is hectic which means so much to me. You’re a fellow Pirate girl in a political world and you make East Carolina University proud. You were the first person to see the potential in me and I can never thank you enough. You make us proud every single day and I hope that we can make you as proud as you make us. I love you Amanda, and I hope you realize how special and important you are; not only to me, and the other FFL girls, but to the conservative movement as a whole.”
Cat B. (FFL Contributor) “I’m so incredibly grateful for what Amanda has done for conservative women, especially young women, through Future Female Leader. I might be new to the team, but it was FFL and the group of women that Amanda has brought together that really inspired me to be open about politics and get involved through social media and blogging. Without this inspirational organization, so many young conservative women wouldn’t have this outlet to have their voices heard and bring us together. I’m so excited to be a part of the team and I’m so grateful that there are women like Amanda to open up so many doors for conservative women.”
Jessica O. (FFL Contributor) “Amanda is an inspiration to me because as incredibly ambitious and driven to build something she is proud of as she is, she has also made sure that she is never doing something solely for herself. She has always worked to empower and support other conservative women by creating a platform that allows them to express themselves. Amanda and Future Female Leader inspire young women to be proud of who they are and what they believe in and that in and of itself is inspiring.”
Aryssa D. (FFL Cabinet Member) “I am so grateful to have a boss, friend, and role model like Amanda, who inspires me daily with her amazing work ethic, dedication to Conservatism, and dedication to us, her readers and customers. I always admired Amanda and FFL from the beginning, when it was just a twitter account and now it is a movement that has spread from coast to coast. I am so lucky that Amanda picked me to be involved with FFL as a cabinet member and I can’t wait to see what the Good Lord has in store for FFL, with our fearless Amanda at the helm!”
Julia S. (FFL Contributor) “The greatest thing about Amanda is her ability to bring young women together. So often we are looking for people to commonly identify with, especially with more personal things like political ideologies. By creating FFL, she brought together a great group of women I am so lucky to have in my life. I hope she continues to inspire people the way she does me.”
Molly H. (FFL Cabinet Member) “I followed you as a freshman in high school who didn’t really have an interest in politics but liked your sassy, fun loving attitude. As the weeks went by of following you, you gave me an honest appreciate for America, politics, and the Republican Party. Even before you were my official mentor, you were already my mentor. You have been an inspiration in politics for longer than you will ever realize. I will never forget the day that the FFL account followed my anon back. I screenshotted it and sent it to all of my friends because I was absolutely ecstatic. Since then, our friendship has grown immensely. You have helped my love for politics grow, inspired me to keep informed, and most importantly you have helped give me the confidence and voice to express these loves. A million thank yous will never be suffice to tell you how genuinely thankful I am for all you have done in my life. Thank you Amanda for being my mentor, role model, and most importantly my friend. I will always be grateful for Future Female Leaders and all that it has done for me.”
Sheridan M. (FFL Contributor) “I’ve been following Amanda’s FFL Twitter account since my freshman year in high school. She has always inspired me to speak out about what I believe in, and to always defend my beliefs. FFL has given me a voice and I couldn’t thank Amanda enough for creating such an amazing organization.”
Kalley E. (FFL Cabinet Member) “Amanda, where do I even begin? You have single handedly given me confidence to be myself through FFL. You have connected me with people who I have never met in person (well, until now) and whom I am closer to than some of my friends here in Duluth. Not many can say they’ve done that! You’ve made me feel supported in my conservative ideas ALWAYS, even though everyone in Minnesota seems to be a liberal. All thanks to YOU! You may not notice it, but you have changed my life for the better. I sincerely appreciate all the time and effort you have put into FFL. I feel so lucky to have you on ‘my team’. Thank you so much for all you do. This is going to be the most amazing CPAC ever!”
Anna K. (FFL Contributor) “I have been following FFL on Twitter since almost the very beginning and it has been incredible to watch how it has grown into a movement for women of all ages. Thanks, Amanda, for being the visionary and leader behind this organization and for giving women like myself a voice. Not only have you allowed Republican girls an outlet to express themselves but you have also created a sisterhood of like-minded individuals and encouraged us all to never back down in spreading the conservative message. We are all so grateful for you and for FFL!”
Gabriella W. (FFL Contributor) “I am so thankful for all of the opportunities you have given me. These past few months working with FFL have been the best months of my life. Seeing how much you care about all of us and FFL makes you a real remodel. I cannot wait to see how much FFL will flourish in the years to come thanks to you. I am truly thankful to be a part of it and to know you personally. Thank you for everything you do! CPAC is going to be AMAZING!”
Marie P. (FFL Cabinet Member) “I’ve always loved politics but never felt comfortable vocalizing them in a public manner. Luckily for me, discovering FFL has given me the opportunity to become an educated young woman in the crazy world of politics. Amanda, you have given me the chance to publish my lame jokes about politics and to contribute to political journalism, and that is something I can never thank you enough for. You have taken the apprehensive girl and given her the confidence to voice her political views shamelessly. You have given me the chance to let my voice be heard and the opportunity to experience the political world in a way I never thought I’d be able to. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing to be a part of Future Female Leaders. Thank you for devoting your time to me and reassuring me that I’m valuable to this organization. Thank you for all your time Amanda, and finally, thank you for being the wonderful woman you are.”
Madison B. (FFL Contributor) “Although I am new to the FFL team, the impact you have had on my life is not. The voice and inspiration you’ve given to not only me but so many others is something I’ll forever be thankful for. I’m proud to say Amanda Owens is one of my role models! Thank you for all that you’ve done for not just conservatism but for giving others courage and ways to speak out.”
Sara S. (FFL Cabinet Member) “I first started following Amanda’s twitter account around the 2012 presidential election, back when it was still called Future First Lady.  I was a young freshman at a fairly liberal university and felt as if I was the only conservative woman on campus.  Future First Lady gave me a home away from home.  It helped me realize that I am not alone and that while I may not make my voice as loud as some liberals do, my voice is just as important.  I always dreamed of becoming a Cabinet Member, and was absolutely ecstatic when my application was accepted in the spring of 2015. Future Female Leaders has impacted my life in so many wonderful ways.  I have dealt with depression since I was sixteen, and while I have made a lot of progress since my darkest days five years ago, I certainly still have times where I struggle.  However, FFL has brought so much good into my life and has given me so many reasons to choose happiness.  It has helped me find my voice in politics and given me the courage to stand up for what I believe in, even if my opinion is far from popular.  I now have a group of amazing women who I know have my back no matter what.  I have been given the amazing opportunity to attend CPAC for the first time and represent FFL.  Above all else, I met my twin in life – Danielle.  She has become one of my absolute best friends and I can’t imagine what my life would be like if FFL hadn’t brought me to her.  I hope Amanda knows what an amazing impact she has had on so many lives, including mine. The movement that Amanda has created with Future Female Leaders is nothing short of amazing.  She has singlehandedly inspired so many young women, both conservative and liberal, to become involved in politics.  She has helped women who were previously politically apathetic become interested in politics and educated about various issues.  Above all else, Amanda has empowered young women to become the type of fearless leader that she is.  As a conservative woman, I know that there will be times where people will doubt me and pressure me to be someone that I am not.  However, Amanda has shown how successful you can be if you simply stay true to who you are.  Amanda is one of the kindest people I have ever met, she stays firm in her beliefs, and she doesn’t back down from a challenge.  She is an inspiration to me and I can only hope to be half the woman she is.  Thank you for everything, Amanda.”
Jamie R. (FFL Contributor) “Amanda, you have impacted so many lives. My life changed when I became a contributor, you gave me new friends, a family, and confidence in my political views.  You have impacted so many people through Future Female Leaders, giving young women the confidence to stand up for their conservative beliefs when liberals try to tear us down.  You started a movement, a movement that has and will keep growing stronger. FFL is a source of greatness and inspiration for women to become leaders. You are a great role model for women like me, and I look up to you when it comes to expressing my sass and conservatism. Thank you so much for all you do for us, and all you do for our readers!”
Alexis C. (FFL Cabinet Member) “It is impossible for me to put into words how thankful I am for Amanda and the Future Female Leaders organization. Over the past year of being an FFL Cabinet Member, I have found my own voice and I have learned that I do not have to be ashamed of my love for politics. Being a part of this incredible group of women has truly changed my life. Amanda, thank you for being so hardworking, driven, intelligent and genuinely kind. Thank you for giving me this incredible opportunity! You are such a great role model for myself and many other young conservative women. Thank you for being fiercely patriotic and unapologetically sassy!”
Lauren P. (FFL Contributor) “Amanda, you are incredible!! You do so much to grow the conservative movement. The impact you have on young women is amazing! The Future Female Leader is growing so fast and is changing so many lives. For example, FFL has changed my life. It has connected me with so many girls that share the same views as me. Thank you, Amanda, for all you do! You are such an encouragement! We love you!!!”
Emily N. (FFL Contributor) “Thank you, Amanda, for everything you do for us young conservative women. You gave us a voice and a beautiful team in which we are able to connect and befriend girls who hold the same values–something I personally never had the honor of experiencing up until this point. Never in a million years could I have imagined being able to work with such wonderful and passionate people, and though I just joined this year, I already feel like a part of the family. Without you, none of it would be possible! Future Female Leader is the beginning of a new journey in my life and for that I am most thankful. You have encouraged and strengthened my interest in politics, and because of you I am no longer afraid of often being the only Republican girl in the room. You are everything that our traditional American values uphold: patriotic, hard-working, ambitious, charitable, and proud of who you are. As a young female I look up to you, and hope that one day I will set as admirable a path as you have.”
Andrea R. (FFL Cabinet Member) “Thank you Amanda for providing an outlet for strong conservative women to voice their opinions. FFL has had such an impact on me, on our readers, and will continue to help girls form their conservative opinions for years to come. Thank you for all that you do!”
Jennifer D. (FFL Contributor) “Future Female Leaders has given myself and other conservative women around the country a voice to be heard. Amanda is exemplary of what every future female leader should be – classy, sassy, and republican. Thanks to Amanda, we all have a wonderful role model as well as an organization that allows us to grow and express our views together.”
Raegan S. (FFL Cabinet Member) “FFL has become such a huge part of my life in the last few years. When I would read the blog posts my junior year of high school, I would never have dreamt that I would be a part of the movement! Amanda, you have changed the game for politics! You have inspired me to follow my heart and I cannot thank you enough!”
Jessica M. (FFL Contributor) “I could never thank you enough for the opportunities that you have given me. Because of you, I have gotten the chance to speak up as the young, conservative, and classy woman that I am. In creating FFL, you have given me, along with thousands of other woman, a platform to share my views and know that they are being shared by many others. I have become more motivated, more outspoken, and even more passionate in politics all thanks to you. You have given me a job as a Contributor to the site where I get to write about things that I love to speak about and you have given me the opportunity to attend CPAC this week which I probably would not have gotten to do without you and FFL. Thank you so much for everything that you do and know that you are appreciated every single day by so many of us!”
Kelci W. (FFL Cabinet Member) “I’m unbelievably thankful that I have somewhere to voice my opinion and that I can be surrounded by like-minded women. Without FFL and Amanda NONE of that would be possible. Words on a page couldn’t ever express my relentless gratitude for the unending support and genuine love that we get from Amanda. Thanks for ALL you do to make FFL the best is possibly can be!”
Emily C. (FFL Contributor) “Amanda has inspired so many girls through her seemingly never ending hard work. She has taught so many young women to embrace their views, and let the whole world know how proud we are to be conservatives. She has empowered us to truly become future female leaders, and I am so thankful to be apart of this organization. Amanda is an inspiration to us all to speak out about our passions and embrace our dreams. Thank you Amanda for all you have done!”
Kate C. (FFL Contributor) “Thanks for being you and making FFL the strong, vibrant organization that it is. Since becoming a part of the movement you started, I’ve gained over 40 new best friends who all believe in hard work, conservatism and that a woman can do anything she sets her mind to. You’re truly brilliant and you represent the epitome of the modern republican woman. Thank you for bringing us all together by giving us a place to enrich and express ourselves. I can’t wait to see you at CPAC!”
Sarah G. (FFL Contest Winner) “I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating such a strong movement among conservative women. At an age where culture has told us what we should and shouldn’t believe, you provide a great outlet for likeminded women to come together to share ideas, form opinions, become informed and support each other as a community. FFL has without a doubt shaped who I am today and given me a safe place to figure out where I stand politically, as well as given me an awesome community of people to share it with. Thank you for encouraging women to become more politically aware. Whether through FFL Debate contests or sassy pocket tees, FFL has encouraged involvement in the next generation of American leaders, and it all goes back to your hard work and dedication to this vision. Thank you for everything you have done to inspire everyday people like me. Your talent does not go unnoticed or unappreciated!”
Maggie B. (FFL Contest Winner) “I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. You’ve honestly made my semester brighten up so much and changed my perspective on a lot just by inviting me to CPAC. This is easily the best opportunity I have received in my life, and I am beyond thankful for you. I’m so beyond blessed to have been invited by y’all, and honestly it warms my heart knowing I’ll get to spend time with some of the most amazing people I’ve ever talked to and look up to. Although we didn’t personally talk until recently, I know I love you to death. I was always confident in my beliefs, but I never had a way to show it, and I was scared to be attacked by liberals in my school. After finding your twitter and website so long ago, I became so much more confident in showing everyone that politics matter and our views matter. I ordered so many things, and I still wear every item religiously so I can show that I am proud to be a young republican woman. It feels like I’ve followed y’all forever, and this opportunity is still beyond real. You have honestly taught me so much, not just with politics, but also with life, career path, drama, boys, etc. I’m so thankful Amanda. You really made my whole life with this and with your organization, honestly. Thank you.”
Sadie H., Sydney H., Sara R., Charlotte R.  (FFL Contest Winners) “Amanda is our Woman Crush Wednesday because she changed our lives and blessed us with an amazing opportunity to learn, grow and have a voice in the political field. She represents a strong conservative woman who has a love for what she does. She inspires us daily to build other women up and persuade them to have a voice in politics. She has connected us to the FFL group which in turn, has given us lifelong friends. For that, we are forever grateful for Amanda and everything she does. Thank you, Amanda for representing us Conservative women and being an excellent example of what to be. We truly appreciate you and everything you do. Thank you for seeing something more in us. And thank you for giving us an opportunity of a lifetime.”
Caroline O. (FFL Cabinet Member) “Amanda, you’ve impacted my life in more ways than one. Not only do I look up to you because you’re my big sister but because you’ve shown me what a strong, classy conservative woman is. You’ve helped me find my voice and to stand up for what I believe in, whether its politics related or not. As sisters, we’ve always been really close. You were always very protective of me and always supported whatever I did. Since becoming more involved with Future Female Leaders, we’ve grown closer than ever before. I remember about three and a half years ago, I watched you package your very first FFL product, the famous “Red, White & Better Than You” tanks. I didn’t know it then, but in that moment you began to inspire others. Thank you for including me in everything FFL has to offer. It’s been such an amazing experience to watch you grow as an individual and as an organization because I know it’s what you’re truly passionate about. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for both you and FFL and I cannot wait to be there every step of the way! I love you Amanda, thank you for showing me what it truly means to be a classy, fabulous Republican woman!”
