After graduation, I will be attending Infantry Basic Officer Leader Course at Fort Benning, Ga., as a second lieutenant. I have always wanted to become an infantry officer, and Edinboro University's Army ROTC program gave me the tools I needed to achieve that. I chose to study geography because of my love for the outdoors, and a career path in the Army is something I have always wanted to do.
The cadre at Edinboro University has continually challenged me for the past four years, ensuring that I will be ready for the next step: Becoming an officer. In five years, I would like to be a captain in the Army Infantry.
