"I'm a very dedicated and motivated individual. I live by 'mind over matter.' My dad used to say it to me anytime I got stumped by something or if he knew I wasn't giving 100%. He knows me like the back of his hand. Even to this day, we have a connection and he always pushes me and reminds me I can do anything I put my mind to. Because of that, I think I will stay in the Air Force and work hard to become a Chief Master Sergeant or commission to become an officer."
