GETTING TO KNOW YOU ... Jasamine Pettie
How did you get started in volleyball?
-- In junior year of high school, the coach asked me to play
Who are the biggest influences in your life and why?
-- My mom, she's a mom and a friend--I respect her and appreciate all that she's sacrificed for me. She expects nothing in return--just me being happy has always been enough for her.
How do you balance your athletics, academics and military duties?
-- Time management skills--it's a tough balance, but using your time wisely is key
Who is your favorite non-volleyball athlete(s) at the Academy?
-- Anwar Johnson is my hero. He's a great athlete and he's been a good brother to me.
What is your favorite class and why?
-- Any with engineering--it's tangible!
Who is your favorite professor/AOC/etc. and why?
-- Major Ferelle Smith is exactly the kind of officer I want to be! He's been the closest thing to a dad I could ever ask for and I miss him.
What is your favorite place on the Academy grounds and why?
-- The chapel, I love buildings and the chapel is definitely modern and beautiful. I love singing there.
Do you have any game-day rituals?

What is your favorite road trip story?
-- Robe Party!!!!! That's all I can say!
How do you feel that you are developing into a future Air Force officer?
