Gabriella Hoffman: Counter Cultured and Prolific
“Every Virginian—native or not—should attend this event. “- Gabriella Hoffman
Every year the Shad Planking makes national news. Journalists from TV, newspapers, and blogs come from all over the state and country come to be a part of the “spring rite of politics.” Lots of folks have a lot say at the Shad Planking, and it’s important to us that everyone is made aware of every detail. To this end, we have invited dozens of journalists from across the media spectrum to be a part of the event. We think it is important for our guests to know who will be reporting.
Only in her twenties, Gabriella Hoffman is prolific. She has 40,000 Twitter followers and has been published by The Washington Times, Erick Erickson’s The Resurgent, Townhall.com, Counter Cultured (which she founded), and Wide Open Spaces. People truly care about what she has to say.
Gabriella’s wise and authoritative voice belies her 25 years (she calls herself a “dangerously young Conservative”). She loves Virginia politics, and her status as transplant to Virginia has given her remarkable and valuable insight. Her writing has redefined the term “conservative woman.” In a recent article on The Resurgent, she wrote, “Combine true empowerment, feminine virtue, ambition, maternal instincts, sass, and intelligence—and what do you get? A force to be reckoned.” That is exactly what Gabriella Hoffman is, a force to be reckoned.
A lot of young celebrities focus their attention on partying and are more famous for their antics and bad behavior than for any skills or art they produce. Gabriella on the other hand seeks to do real and meaningful good in the community, just like the Shad Planking. She actively supports pregnancy crisis centers. Gabriella loves fishing (just take a look at her Twitter feed), and she also supports hunting and fishing organizations that help disabled Americans, veterans, and youth.
Her passion for politics will bring Gabriella to the 68th Shad Planking and Grapes & Grains Festival, but there are other reasons she will be attending. “I’m looking forward to my first Shad Planking event this year,” she told us. “As a transplant to Virginia, I know this event is key to the Virginia experience. Every Virginian—native or not—should attend this event. Virginia has welcomed my family with open arms. What better way to get together with fellow Virginians than at an event centered around politics and fish? I can’t wait to attend!”
