How long have you been a part of the Army and how did you get involved?

I contracted into the Army in October of 2014. I was inspired to serve after a number of my familie members had before me including my father who retired as a Senior Master Sergeant.

How has this aspect of you life shaped who you are today?

The Army instilled values, determination, and a type of family which cannot be built anywhere else. This has not only shaped how I lead others but my entire outlook on life.

What are your plans for after graduation?

I will commission as an Active Duty infantry 2nd Lieutenant after graduation where I will be for the next 8 years.
