“When I joined the ROTC program in 2001, I didn’t expect to stay.  As the months progressed, I became intrigued by the knowledge of my instructors.  The leadership skills and discipline that the program instilled in me helped me make effective decisions and allowed me to become a better student on campus.  I later found myself being awarded a scholarship and thus becoming contracted to join the military.  Joining ROTC was the best career decision to make as a young black female. It has made me stronger mentally, physically, and socially.  I am truly proud to be an officer in the United States Army.”
