Republican candidate Fiorina has the experience to lead the country

Becoming the president of the United States of America is something that millions of people have dreamed about since they were little kids. In fact, I have had that same dream myself. However, this job is not as fancy as it seems.

With national and global issues on your agenda everyday, the life of a president can be stressful.
Moreover, a president has to have excellent academic and work experience to face these challenges and overcome them. This is why we have to pick carefully who will be next the president. I would vote for Carly Fiorina.

“We know that the only way to reimagine our government is reimagining who is leading it,” Fiorina once stated. These were the first words of hers to capture my attention. Then, I invested myself in some research. The more I found about Fiorina, the more I thought she was the one who could lead the country.
As mentioned before, having solid work experience is important in this specific job because it demonstrates how effective you can be in the global business world we live in today.

There are solid arguments as to why Fiorina should be president. She previously served as the president of Lucent-Technologies, a multinational telecommunications equipment company, for three years.

Later on, she became the CEO, of Hewlett-Packard, one of the biggest information technology companies on the world, staying on for seven years. She then became the fund chair of One Woman Initiative from 2013 to 2015.

Furthermore, with ambitious ideas and projects such as rebuilding the United States Military, obtaining Zero-Based Budgeting, reforming the VA to serve veterans better, creating millions of jobs for the American people and more, Carly Fiorina has proven herself to be the right choice.

On the other hand, there is another version of Fiorina that needs to be discussed, her religious side. The woman from Texas has shown throughout the campaign her strong religious side many times.

“I get up every morning, I read my daily scripture, and I pray,” Fiorina states on her official website. “It’s always how I start my day because if I don’t have that time […] I don’t do well for the rest of day.”

Fiorina later added that she finishes her day the same way. This is important because even though the United States does not have an established religion, 87 percent of Americans do have one, according to ABC News. Therefore, it’s important to have a president with the faith Fiorina has shown.

However, according to the latest polls, Fiorina has not been doing well in the eyes of the public. With only 3 percent of voters on her side, she’s behind big competitors like Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Ted Cruz, Ben Carson and of course, Donald Trump.

Even so, the 61-year-old Fiorina has not shown discouragement in any sense. Her improvement throughout the campaign has been significant. From not making the cut to the first debate, Fiorina has increased her numbers by winning the hearts of millions.

Personally, I would vote for Carly Fiorina because she wants to implement ideas that the American people truly need. I hope that in the next few month of campaign, we all realize that she is the president we need. We need Carly Fiorina. We need real leadership.
