SUMMARY

Military service runs in my family; my great grandfather landed at Normandy on the third day and made it all the way to Paris. One day,  my uncle, who also served, told me to try on his helmet and imagine myself as an officer. At this time, it was not common for a female to think ahead to leadership in the military, but my dream started there.

Today, I am one of only 3 girls in my STEM classes. I work hard and believe my academic aptitudes, discipline, and talents for engineering will help me as I pursue a leadership role in military service.

 Spanish Immersion Program in Peru

 A 3-week Spanish immersion program in Peru, when I was 16, became a key achievement.

--       While in Peru, I was challenged physically, through local community outreach, public speaking in a foreign language, and was named “Leader of the Day” three times.

--       I gained a global perspective, pushed my mental and physical limits, and learned dependability and accountability at every turn.

These traits and my passion to serve this country and lead others are important for a military officer.
