My name is Owen Jaeckle, I am a senior in high school from Madison, Wisconsin. I have written for minor outlets such as my school and my local newspapers. If I had to align myself with a political viewpoint, classical liberal/libertarian capitalist would best suit me. Of the two major parties, though, I am constantly finding myself agreeing with Republicans through and through, and that’s why I decided to start and run my school’s very own Young Republicans Club.
When all is said and done in high school, I hope to attend either Northern Illinois University or Loyola University Chicago where I plan to major in Economics and at some point, receive my law degree.
I am Beth Walker, high school junior and competitive shooter. I write for a few different publications and have been featured in the NRA Blog and USCCA blog. After meeting with several legislators in Washington on the basis of the Second Amendment, I decided to become more active after years of following and being interested in politics. In the future I hope to become a lawyer and possibly run for Congress.
