Know Your Rebels: Princella Smith
October 27, 2004

I've been searching for a way to highlight the under 25-year-olds of my generation that you should be afraid of. So I introduce yet another ongoing feature inspired by Joe at the Evangelical Outpost, called "Know Your Rebels".

Rebel: Princella Smith

Why you should fear her: The daughter of a minister and a teacher, she even won the attention of MTV viewers and was chosen as the youngest black woman to deliver a speech to delegates at this year's Republican National Convention. Princella is willing to go against the grain of this generation by being unapologetically Christian and Conservative. Plus she's six feet tall. Plus her name is Princella; that's an action-figure name.

Age: 21

Representing: Wayne, Arkansas

Status: Junior History and Political Science major at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas

Achievements: beat out 100,000 other contestants to become the winner of MTV's "Stand Up and Holla Essay Contest" sponsored by the GOP Convention and MTV was a featured youth speaker at this year's Republican National Convention. Chairman of district 4 for the Arkansas College Republicans, youngest member of African-Americans for Bush, member of the Lady Tiger Basketball Team, Senior Class President, 2001 Governors of Girl State and honors graduate from Wynne High School.

She recently finished an unpaid internship for U.S. Rep. John Boozman, R-Ark., and her other political volunteer work includes service for Gov. Mike Huckabee and Lt. Gov. Win Rockefeller. She plans on attending law school.

Speeches: Generation X-ample

Interviews: YM Magazine, OBU News, Southern Baptist Church Press, Boston, The Early Show, MTV, Washington Times.

I am SO mad I missed her speaking at the RNC. I was rooting for her to win too!

Let's not forget what really matters--she's pretty.

I jest..

princella, though?

I think I remember her from the RNC. I thought she was hot. But what stuck me is that she was quite gripping in her speech. You know, the kind of person that makes you go wow. The Zell Miller or Barak Obama kind of speaker.

Aw man, you missed your chance!
