Why I came to the Academy: "The Academy is a place that is held with the highest regards. When I reflect on what I have done here, I know that this is the only place that it is all possible. I am honored to have the privilege of serving in the Greatest Air Force in the world and to serve next to the brothers and sisters I have made along this journey. I have already grown so much as a person since being here, I am excited to see what will come."
