Women of Washington

Advice to My 25-Year-Old Self

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen encourages young women to lighten up a little.

If you could give one piece of advice to your younger self - whether professional or personal - what would it be? That's the question we posed to Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen to kick off our Women of Washington video series, and we'll be asking each featured speaker the same question (you're next, Kirsten Gillibrand!). You can watch Ros-Lehtinen's full Women of Washington conversation with The Atlantic's Steve Clemons here.
