#6 Symone Sanders - CNN Political Commentator & Former National Press Secretary for Bernie Sande
“Being a radical revolutionary means standing in the gap and being willing to access who is and who is not at the table.” - Symone D. Sanders
When Symone Sanders was the ripe old age of 25, she boldly pursued a job she wanted... and got it. Symone was the national press secretary for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in 2015 and has since made waves as a political commentator on CNN and a powerful political activist. She calls for accomplices, not allies. Symone asks us to recognize our differences, embrace them, and work together for radical solutions. She's fierce, sharp as a tack, and strong as a... well.. woman. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll probably have to write in your journal after this one. (We definitely did.)
