This conference provided the unique opportunity for us young conservatives from all over the country to get to interact with each other in person,” Brilyn Hollyhand, a 15-year-old high school student from Tuscaloosa, 阿拉巴马州, 告诉福克斯新闻. “It’s so cool to get to talk about our beliefs together and also share ideas and suggestions with each other to take back and share with our friends and audiences at home.

The energy and optimism going into 2022 is off the charts,” Hollyhand added. “Young conservatives are ready to fight and win elections across the country, and after hearing four days of speakers, we are ready to get out there and take back the House and Senate in 2022.

The mood at AmericaFest was electric.

Events like this are really what bring young Republicans together,” Sabrina Miller, a Fresno State student who attended the conference, 告诉福克斯新闻. “Where I’m from, many of my ideas are rejected. I feel at home when I’m around other students who share a similar vision for America.

Others who attended the event expressed similar feelings of optimism and said the event helped them connect with conservative influencers.

This event is great because we have opportunities to meet people we see on social media who actively work to spread conservative messages,” said Caleb, a student from Louisiana State University who asked that his last name not be used. “Getting to meet and talk to people is important, and Turning Point provided us with that opportunity while allowing us to get to talk with people from the Republican Party who are in Congress.

Events like this will help us in 2022, and that’s what some people are still trying to understand,” 他加了. “Because we meet in person and can have conversations our relationships with one another get better.

Samuel Danby, a senior student from Vanderbilt University, told Fox News that he believes in-person events offera path forward for Republicansbecause it allows themopportunities to talk with one another and better understand how people act around others.

Sometimes you only get one side to how someone acts, and that can be confusing through a camera,” Danby added. “有了这个, it’s a little more personal. You can see how people react to one another and share ideas on different topics face to face.

It’s important,” Claymont said. “If we don’t extend what we cherish to our children and grandchildren, even great-grandchildren in my case, then there’s no doubt in my mind that society as we know it will be lost. We’re seeing what’s happening, and these kids are our hope.
