In a country free of genuine leadership, the rooms are overflowing with corporate creatures, one would not expect to find someone of integrity in elected office, let alone on the national stage. Meet Tulsi Gabbard, Democratic Representative from Hawaiis 2nd Congressional District. From the time she was a young girl, Tulsis entire life has been attracted around giving back to her community, her country, and the world as a whole.
Tulsi was born on April 12, 1981 in Leloaloa, in a multicultural family. Her name is that of the holy basil plant in Hinduism. At the age of two, Tulsis family moved to Hawaii where she would spend the rest of her youth, helping out with her familys small business and learning the values of hard work, taking risks, and integrity. As a teenager, Tulsi co-founded an environmental non-profit called the Healthy Hawaii Coalition, which serves to educate children about protecting the environment of Hawaii. She spent a significant amount of time giving back to the community and truly embraced public service, which has continued through her adult life.
She began her political career in 2002 at the age of 21 where she became the youngest elected official to the Hawaii state legislature in the history of the state. She served as a constant advocate for the environment, proposing additional tax credits for those who use wind and solar in addition to a variety of other legislation. She served her community for two years before and moved on to the next chapter of her life.
Despite being only 36 years of age and only serving three terms in the House of Representatives, Tulsi is the strongest potential presidential candidate going into the 2020 election.
In order to motivate Tulsi to run and to build grassroots support for her across the country, it is important that you get involved and tell your friends and family about Tulsi. It is up to us to continue the political revolution and elect one of the strongest candidates in American history to the highest office in the land. It is time to spread the spirit of Aloha.
