Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to speak at CPAC 2011 in Washington, D.C. I had a chance to share my ideas on how students and young professionals can win conservative victories, both on-campus and in business.

Finding beauty in life

In the video below, Chelsea tells me about her daily regimen to manage cystic fibrosis and her hope for the future. I think you will find the video inspiring and eye-opening. Video filmed and produced by Charles Eide of Forever Film Studios.
