Nikki Haley has become a hero to many young conservatives over the past few years. Some even speculate that she will even be our first female president.
The main reason I became a fan of Haley is this photo:
The photo encompasses everything I want to be when making decisions: firm, fashionable, and fearsome.
Haley’s staunch and continuous support of the Israeli people is nothing short of inspirational. She has always been a strong proponent of the chosen people of God, and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has even nicknamed her “Hurricane Haley.”
Sadly for the people of Israel, Haley officially left her position as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations in January, leaving many to wonder what her next political move will be. However, it’s certain that the people of Israel will definitely have her support no matter what move she makes.
What I admire most about Haley is her strong commitment to what some in the political sphere might deem as insignificant. All over her Twitter (both current and archived) and Instagram accounts, you can find proof of her passion for Clemson football, her kids, and her husband. A woman who regularly takes time from her busy and successful career to praise her children is someone who deserves notice for staying true to herself in a world that tries to tell everyone who they should be. Haley refuses to allow her life to be defined strictly by politics.
The same year Haley gave birth to her first child, she was also named to the BoD of the Orangeburg County Chamber of Commerce. She is a prime example that having a family and becoming a mother doesn’t have to stop you from pursuing career aspirations.
As her political career boomed from a member of the the South Carolina House of Representatives in 2004 to first female governor of South Carolina in 2010 to the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, her children have always shined with her, as she continually praises their accomplishments.
Not only does Haley support her own children, but young people everywhere. She has consistently interacted with organizations such as Lone Conservative, Students for Haley, Future Female Leaders, and others.
Nikki Haley is a role model like few others and that is why she is my conservative hero.
