I recently had the pleasure of sitting down to talk with Ashley Sewell, Southwest Regional Coordinator for Smart Girl Politics, a wonderful grassroots organization that’s doing amazing work in taking our country back, one community at a time. The bright, intelligent and effervescent 26 year-old shared her story about becoming an active member of SGP, her own political awakening and her experience as a conservative young woman. Head on over to Parcbench for the full interview, but here’s a teaser:
Little did Ashley Sewell realize when a woman approached her to take a photo of her sign at an Arlington, Texas Tea Party in April 2009, that she would end up becoming the Southwest Regional Coordinator for Smart Girl Politics (SGP), an online conservative grassroots movement for women that in a very short span of time, has grown from a blog with seven followers to a social media phenomenon with 40,000 members. Her responsibilities with SGP also include writing for their online magazine, Smart Girl Nation, and covering events like CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) and the Right Online Convention. I recently spoke to Ashley about her own political awakening and motivation for transitioning from a successful sales representative to a full-time activist and blogger.
Thank you to Ashley and SGP for being a true beacon of hope and change on the political scene!
