An Admirable Politician, Businesswoman, Philanthropist and my Role Model – Betsy DeVos


Work History of Betsy DeVos

After looking through her long line of work in the political and corporate arena, I decided that so many remarkable activities of hers must be discussed. I admire the strong persona and passion she used throughout her political career of 1982. This was the year I discovered when she first joined in the Michigan Republican Party as the local precinct delegate. For five years since 1992, I read that Betsy DeVos fulfilled the duties of being Republican National Committeewoman for Michigan. For four years since 1996, she served the role of the chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party. To my discovery, 2003 was the year when DeVos ran for the Republican Party Chairman position and was successfully elected to the post. DeVos’ political activities also involve political fundraising. I was awestruck to discover that she had successfully been able to raise $150 thousand for George Bush’s re-election campaign. I was impressed with her financial acumen, even more, when I found out that she controlled the finance sector for George W. Bush’s administration supremely for two years fulfilling her role as the Finance Chairperson. Betsy DeVos had surprised me with her recent success after the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. I was glad to hear that Betsy DeVos’ lifetime of perseverance in the political field had not gone unnoticed eventually. On the 23rd of November, 2016, the current newly elected President Donald Trump had revealed that he wanted to nominate Betsy DeVos as the upcoming United States Secretary of Education. The American citizens, the entire world and I expect DeVos to revolutionize the current education system. This is because I believe that she has a well-perceived view and experience which she had acquired throughout all of her lifelong philanthropic engagements. I believe that she knows the supreme value of education and she understands its necessity for every child as she had personally met with struggling children from developing nations.

DeVos is an admirable entrepreneur as well being the Chairwoman of WindQuest Group as the company was founded jointly by her lifelong companion 1980. I was emotionally moved to hear that the couple had also jointly produced a Broadway stage play called the Scandalous: The Life and Trials of Aimee Semple McPherson. The show performed incredibly well for three weeks until December 2012.
