Northern Ireland is a fabulous place.
I was brought up here, I studied here,
I've worked here in other capacities.
I believe in Northern Ireland and I want it to continue to do well.
I want to create a strong, safe,
stable Northern Ireland for the future.
I love that photograph of Daddy there. It's a great one, isn't it?
That is a good one.
'My mum was a housewife and looked after all of us.'
My father was a full-time police officer, a part-time farmer.
And, er...we had a very happy childhood,
living in rural Northern Ireland.
Um, well, when the bomb actually went off, I just closed my eyes.
I didn't know what was going on.
I closed my eyes and when I opened them again,
there was silence for about two seconds
and then everybody started to scream.
And I stood up and I said, "Don't panic, don't panic."
One morning we had got on the bus.
We'd travelled a short distance when the bomb exploded.
I think it's up to the whole bus to change it.
In fact, it's up to the whole of the young people of Northern Ireland
to change the way, and what is happening,
to turn against the men of violence.
We are in a much better place today than we were at that time,
and that's something that spurs me on to work for a better future.
I have lived through the past.
I know what happened in the '70s and '80s.
Therefore, I cannot, in all consciousness,
allow them to rewrite the past.
I loved primary school.
I worked hard in secondary school and was able, as a result of that,
to go on to third-level education at Queen's University in Belfast.
We want to see every child having the opportunity to do what I did
and that's to go to school, to work hard and to succeed.
It really motivates me and inspires me
when I see the opportunity to bring more jobs to Northern Ireland
and that's hopefully what we're going to do.
'One of the proudest things is the fact that we've been able
'to create all of those new jobs,
'so that people do not have to leave Northern Ireland.'
To know that I was going to be appointed as First Minister
was an incredibly humbling experience.
-Let me say...
-How are you?
..I'm delighted to see a woman with a bit of sense.
One of the things that makes me feel most fulfilled
is the fact that people say that I'm one of them.
"Arlene, you're one of us," is a phrase I've heard quite frequently
and I am one of them.
I'm so proud that I come from Northern Ireland.
I have a five-point plan for the future.
It's around better infrastructure for the whole of Northern Ireland,
it's about creating more and better jobs,
having a very good health service available for everybody,
free at the point of need,
having a strong education system
across all of the different sectors
and that no sector is favoured over any other sector.
We as a party have made sure that household taxes
have remained low in Northern Ireland
and we want to ensure that that continues to be the case.
I can only achieve these goals with your support.
So if you share my vision, then back my DUP candidates
across Northern Ireland, so I can make this vision a reality.
