Be the change you want to see.
As press secretary for Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Mikayla Hall is doing just that.
Mikayla’s earliest political memory is of accidentally voting for Bill Clinton in 1996 during a mock election at her elementary school.
“I went home and cried because I thought my fake vote made him win,” she said.
Born in Minnesota, Mikayla also considers Washington state one of her home states, having spent a decade in both.
While studying Communication at the University of Washington, Mikayla joined Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) as a freshman after being recruited by a Leadership Institute (LI) field rep. Eventually, she became YAL’s first Northwest Regional Director, organizing students in 10 states.
“LI is a toolkit. You can use its material to build yourself the steps to a career in politics, with opportunities to practice through their internship and field program,” she said.
