Hicks was named to this year’s Forbes 30 Under 30 list and says she knew very little about politics prior to the Trump campaign. She adds that running Trump’s campaign and working in D.C. politics are “two totally different things.”

“If I hadn’t gotten involved in the campaign I would’ve hopefully still be working at the Trump organization in a corporate capacity for such a wonderful family and they built an incredible company and it was an honor to serve them in these different ways,” she says.
