Northern Ireland is a fabulous place.

0:00:170:00:20

I was brought up here, I studied here,

0:00:200:00:23

I've worked here in other capacities.

0:00:230:00:25

I believe in Northern Ireland and I want it to continue to do well.

0:00:250:00:29

I want to create a strong, safe,

0:00:290:00:32

stable Northern Ireland for the future.

0:00:320:00:34

I love that photograph of Daddy there. It's a great one, isn't it?

0:00:340:00:37

That is a good one.

0:00:370:00:38

'My mum was a housewife and looked after all of us.'

0:00:380:00:43

My father was a full-time police officer, a part-time farmer.

0:00:430:00:47

And, er...we had a very happy childhood,

0:00:470:00:50

living in rural Northern Ireland.

0:00:500:00:52

Um, well, when the bomb actually went off, I just closed my eyes.

0:00:520:00:57

I didn't know what was going on.

0:00:570:00:59

I closed my eyes and when I opened them again,

0:00:590:01:01

there was silence for about two seconds

0:01:010:01:03

and then everybody started to scream.

0:01:030:01:06

And I stood up and I said, "Don't panic, don't panic."

0:01:060:01:09

One morning we had got on the bus.

0:01:090:01:11

We'd travelled a short distance when the bomb exploded.

0:01:110:01:15

I think it's up to the whole bus to change it.

0:01:150:01:18

In fact, it's up to the whole of the young people of Northern Ireland

0:01:180:01:21

to change the way, and what is happening,

0:01:210:01:23

to turn against the men of violence.

0:01:230:01:26

We are in a much better place today than we were at that time,

0:01:260:01:29

and that's something that spurs me on to work for a better future.

0:01:290:01:33

I have lived through the past.

0:01:330:01:35

I know what happened in the '70s and '80s.

0:01:350:01:38

Therefore, I cannot, in all consciousness,

0:01:380:01:40

allow them to rewrite the past.

0:01:400:01:42

I loved primary school.

0:01:450:01:47

I worked hard in secondary school and was able, as a result of that,

0:01:470:01:51

to go on to third-level education at Queen's University in Belfast.

0:01:510:01:56

We want to see every child having the opportunity to do what I did

0:01:560:02:00

and that's to go to school, to work hard and to succeed.

0:02:000:02:04

It really motivates me and inspires me

0:02:040:02:06

when I see the opportunity to bring more jobs to Northern Ireland

0:02:060:02:09

and that's hopefully what we're going to do.

0:02:090:02:12

'One of the proudest things is the fact that we've been able

0:02:120:02:14

'to create all of those new jobs,

0:02:140:02:16

'so that people do not have to leave Northern Ireland.'

0:02:160:02:20

To know that I was going to be appointed as First Minister

0:02:200:02:23

was an incredibly humbling experience.

0:02:230:02:26

-Let me say...

-How are you?

0:02:260:02:28

..I'm delighted to see a woman with a bit of sense.

0:02:280:02:31

LAUGHTER

0:02:310:02:33

One of the things that makes me feel most fulfilled

0:02:330:02:36

is the fact that people say that I'm one of them.

0:02:360:02:39

"Arlene, you're one of us," is a phrase I've heard quite frequently

0:02:390:02:43

and I am one of them.

0:02:430:02:45

I'm so proud that I come from Northern Ireland.

0:02:450:02:48

I have a five-point plan for the future.

0:02:490:02:52

It's around better infrastructure for the whole of Northern Ireland,

0:02:520:02:55

it's about creating more and better jobs,

0:02:550:02:57

having a very good health service available for everybody,

0:02:570:03:01

free at the point of need,

0:03:010:03:03

having a strong education system

0:03:030:03:06

across all of the different sectors

0:03:060:03:08

and that no sector is favoured over any other sector.

0:03:080:03:11

We as a party have made sure that household taxes

0:03:110:03:14

have remained low in Northern Ireland

0:03:140:03:17

and we want to ensure that that continues to be the case.

0:03:170:03:20

I can only achieve these goals with your support.

0:03:200:03:23

So if you share my vision, then back my DUP candidates

0:03:230:03:27

across Northern Ireland, so I can make this vision a reality.
