Throughout my life, I was always told by my parents to be a leader, not a follower. This stuck with me for the most part. I mean, it is hard to be a leader at five years old but that didn’t stop me from trying.
My dad coached my pee-wee basketball team and I wanted pink converse to wear as my basketball shoes. I remember wearing them at my very first game. By the second game, the entire team had pink converse. This made me realize the direct impact I had on others. If I was able to influence others with my bright pink sneakers at five years old, then who knew what else I was capable of doing?!
In high school, I was involved with mentoring elementary students. I loved being able to connect with the youth and set a good example for them. Giving advice and making others feel important is what I was strongest at.
Through cadet blogging, I want others to feel connected and have access to any information they need. I want to contribute to the Academy’s visibility to the public eye. This way, we can all be connected.
