We Made the Move: Monica Dean
Making the move to New Hampshire for the Free State Project was an easy decision. At the time, I was in the process of separating from the Navy and looking for options on where to start my new life. My other half mentioned New Hampshire and the FSP when I was in the thick of discovering what freedom and liberty means. I immediately signed up and decided to move there in six months.
I moved on December 17, 2011 from San Diego and was greeted by a large group of Porcupines who helped me move in and welcomed me with open arms. So far, I have gotten involved in several activism events. In January, I campaigned for Ron Paul in the New Hampshire primary and met hundreds of students from around the country who share my passion for liberty. I also started a Young Americans for Liberty Chapter at the University of New Hampshire at Manchester, where I major in Politics and Society using my post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. Last year I helped Emily Sandblade with her winning campaign for State Representative.
These opportunities just scratch the surface of what the Free State Project offers. I have expanded my network and my knowledge of how a free society could work. When a person moves to New Hampshire, they instantly belong to a strong community. I am looking forward to discovering what the FSP has in store for the future, and hope to become even more involved in 2013. It is truly inspiring and I know anyone who moves here will appreciate what the Free State Project stands for: Liberty, Peace, and Opportunity.
