Why I came to the Academy: "I came to the Air Force Academy to push myself in every aspect of my life and become a better person. While the challenges are many and tough, I know I will be better for coming here in the end. Also, the opportunities at the Air Force Academy are amazing, along with life-long bonds I will make with classmates."
