How I Could Contribute as a Cadet Blogger

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2018) Permanent link   All Posts
 Haerr Photo Fourth class year is a handful, but senior year was just as stressful if not more when deciding my “fate” for the next four years. On top of that, choosing to attend CGA is also choosing a career commitment, which adds a whole new level of concern. I believe I would contribute as a cadet blogger by relating to the normalcy of prospective cadets and their anxious feelings.


Not only am I relatable, but I also am passionate about the missions of the U.S. Coast Guard, and I enjoy sharing that enthusiasm with those that are looking to serve in our great maritime service. Even if prospective cadets find that this is not the career path in which they are called to serve, I hope that by sharing our story as cadets here at the Academy that they will develop a high sense of respect for all military services.


I also have a unique background in that I spent a year at Texas A&M University, so I can expand on my experiences here at a service academy in comparison to my experiences at a civilian college.
