  • AveryAvery Douglas is from Amelia Island, Florida. She is a sophomore at the University of Texas at Austin. Avery is currently majoring in Broadcast Journalism and Government. Needless to say, as a strong conservative, Avery stands out in the blue dot of Austin, Texas. In high school, she started a Young Americans for Freedom chapter and currently was the president of her local Teenage Conservative branch.  She eventually combined the two and both chapters still exist today.  Young America's Foundation was extremely supportive and even sent out representatives with starter supplies to help kick start the new club.  

    In March of 2013, Avery was lucky enough to get to travel to Santa Barbara, California for one of the Young America's Foundation's Reagan Ranch High School Conferences. That weekend was one of the best experiences she has ever had! Avery learned more in the short time she was here from the conservative speakers and tour of the Rancho Del Cielo than she had in any of the government classes she had taken prior.

    In college, Avery has taken a noted interest in her campus conservative club. Her club invites local conservative leaders to speak at weekly meetings and engages members in the political process. It has been an amazing experience, but she thinks the University of Texas could definitely benefit from a YAF chapter.  Avery hopes she can get that in the works after this summer!

    After completing her bachelor's degree, Avery would love to attend graduate school somewhere in California. After all, she is a beach girl at heart. When that is completed, Avery wants to pursue a career in broadcasting for a news network, preferably Fox News or C-SPAN.  She could also see herself working for a Senator or for an organization like YAF.

    Avery values Ronald Reagan, for he always showed integrity, compassion, and persistence in everything he did.  She hopes to do the same in every future endeavor.
