Q&A with Rep. Val Demings (FL-10)

“Sometimes we doubt ourselves so much and compare ourselves to others’ expectations. I would tell my younger self to have a little more faith.”

Off The Sidelines: Tell us about yourself. Why did you decide to get off the sidelines and run for office?

OTS: Tell us about where you’re running and what your district is like.

OTS: Whose support or encouragement are you most grateful for?

OTS: What one piece of advice would you give your younger self?

OTS: What issue do you believe deserves more attention on the campaign trail?

OTS: What’s an interesting book/article you’re reading now or you’ve recently finished? And why?

OTS: What’s a fun fact that people might not know about you?

OTS: If you could have dinner with three people (living or deceased) who would they be and why?

OTS: How do you de-stress/unwind?
