Sarah Palin – Her Battle for Alaska

Sarah Palin is an American politician, who had previously served as the 9th governor of Alaska. She was a key Republican supporter during Donald Trump’s leadership bid. She is now running for Alaska’s at-large congressional seat, with Trump endorsing her as a ‘A true America First fighter’. She has been in the spotlight alongside other female politicians like AOC.

Palin was born February 1964, in Sandpoint, Idaho. Her family moved to Alaska when Palin was an infant. Palin has five children, with one child being diagnosed with Down syndrome, and one child joining the army. Only 8% of women keep their child upon learning of the condition during pregnancy, and Palin’s beliefs of pro-life did not affect her decision to keep the baby. Since then, she has divorced her husband, Todd.

Since these events, she is making a resurgence since her resignation in 2009. Some critics are labelling her as a ‘quitter’ and that Alaskans are tired of her. Her policies are short at the moment, but may believe she will become more aggressive once she secures the first round, especially with Trump’s backing. Despite such criticisms, many see her as having a big chance of securing the win, due to the ‘goofy’ nature of Alaska and the tension between nation and state, with Palin representing the latter.

Ever since I was a little girl, my dream was to be the best tennis player in the world. Luck has nothing to do with being good at the sport. I have spent many, many hours… countless hours… on the court working for my one moment in time, not knowing when it would come but believing that it would.
