As a Military Veteran, Yvonne is passionate about Liberty, and the cost of Freedom. Her compass is Faith, Family and Freedom. She is conservative on most issues, and moderate on others. Yvonne believes in the Constitution and preserving freedoms that are endangered today. During her military service overseas, Yvonne had a life changing moment. The commercial airliner, the military used to transfer members to Greece, was hijacked a year after Yvonne arrived on it. The hijackers killed a member of the Navy during the hijacking. The Military changed the way members traveled and dressed to protect members of the military. It was a terrifying time, as protesters stood outside her base yelling “kill all Americans!”. Yvonne realized evil people would be willing to kill her and other Americans, solely because they were American and members of the military. That was a pivotal moment for her. Yvonne is very patriotic, and knows the true cost of freedom. She can help steady our country, during these difficult times. Yvonne has a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science, and Graduate level courses in General Administration. She has been selected and placed in Who’s Who in Colleges and Universities, International Youth in Achievement, Young Community Leaders of America, and Outstanding Young Women of America. Yvonne was elected Vice President of the CSULA Foundation Board of Trustees for two years and served on the campus Union Board. While in the military, she was selected for multiple awards including the prestigious John Levitow award. Yvonne and her twin sister made history by becoming the first set of twins in the CSU system to serve as Student Body President of two separate Universities at the same time or to ever serve at any time. Before, during and after 9/11, she served the military community, and was awarded the California CivIlian Commendation Medal. California needs strong, compassionate leadership. Yvonne provides such leadership, and should be elected our next US Senator for the State of California.
PERSONAL STATEMENT BY YVONNE: I believe we should all tell our own story, regardless of how shocking it may be for others to hear. So, here is my story, which I am alive to tell, by the love and grace of God. Someone once said regarding judging other people, “You don’t know what it has taken, for the person you are judging, to be standing in front of you!” As a victim of sexual assault as a child, and again in the military by my Commander overseas, I understand that statement. Most people who know me, have no idea I was a sexual assault victim. Joyce Meyers, a well known Christian Speaker, and who suffered the same type of sexual assault I suffered, said “ we need to help others, climb out of the pit, we have climbed out of ourselves!” My husband Carlos, a retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel, whom I met in the military, told me before we got married, “Don’t let what happened to you, as a child, determine the rest of your life!” I have endeavored to follow that advice, and have worked to help others know not to give up on life, regardless of their circumstances. We have all have been born with a purpose, and no child is a “mistake”. There is a bright future for us, if we would only believe. Everyone has ups and downs in life, getting back up, after a setback, and never giving up is the secret to persevering, and living a long, strong, happy life.
