Forum 360: Striving Valiantly with Akronite Emilia Sykes

Teddy Roosevelt was the 26th and youngest president of the United States. The following is a brief edit from one of his most famous quotes, “The credit belongs to the man or woman who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly ...”

Akronite Emilia Sykes is one of those in the arena. At 33 years old, she is already serving her third term in Columbus in the Ohio House of Representatives. A visit to Israel last spring helped her see Israel as the Silicon Valley of the Mid East. Selected as the minority leader in her third term, at times she is marred by dust and sweat – figuratively if not literally.
