    Hi My name is Leah Llewellyn and I am from Cecil County Maryland I didn t know that I was going to come to the Coast Guard Academy until practically the last minute before I had to make a decision Besides choosing between military and civilian colleges I also had to decide between the Coast Guard and the Air Force My father graduated from the Air Force Academy and my sister is a 3 c there now I ultimately accepted my appointment to the USCGA because of its humanitarian mission and its incredible stations but I also loved the campus and the relationships that all the cadets had with each other because the school was so small I hope to someday do the exchange program to Air Force to see how different my life could have been but I know I made the best decision in coming here I originally thought that I would play volleyball and join the Glee Club when I got here but when that didn t work out I started looking to try something new like crew and the Equestrian Club That s one of the great things about the Coast Guard Academy There are so

    Evan Twarog Growing up in Keene New Hampshire it s not exactly a natural leap to go from a small New England city to the Coast Guard The story of how I ended up here is too long to tell now but I think if there is one reason I came to the USCGA it would be because of my time with the Keene Interact Club In my four years with the club some pretty amazing opportunities presented themselves I travelled to El Salvador three times won a trip to India through an essay contest served as president of the club and spoke at the United Nations in New York City The club taught me that serving others opens up some pretty amazing opportunities for you as well The Rotary motto One profits most who serves best became a part of me Since arriving at the Academy I ve had the chance to become involved in a couple sports and clubs During high school it s relatively easy to balance a half dozen different clubs and three seasons of sports That s not the case here You have to commit yourself to whatever you re passionate about I ve started racing with the USCGA Triathlon team with the hope of competing at the National Championships this spring Additionally I m in the process of becoming involved with the EMT Club here where I can eventually earn my EMT certification The Academy is not an easy place to be Every fourth class for that matter probably everyone has a unique love hate relationship with the Academy That being said there has never been a day when I ve regretted my decision to come here One of the neat things about life here is that as we go through our Academy experience

    makes me a 4 c As I stated I am from Colorado so I love snowboarding and the outdoors I also enjoy shooting the occasional 18 holes on the weekends and playing guitar I am proud to say that my brother and my sister are both enlisted Coasties so I aspire to join them in the fleet one day In high school I knew very little about life at the Academy I never visited nor did I attend the AIM program My first impression of being a cadet came on R Day which did not make me feel too welcome but now as a 4 c I feel included in the corps After high school I attended Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott Arizona because I did not receive an appointment to the Class of 2018 At Embry Riddle I studied Aerospace Engineering and red shirted on the wrestling team hoping that I would receive an appointment to the Class of 2019 and in March I did indeed receive that appointment So far the Academy has been more than I expected In the few months I have been here I have spent time in New York City and Boston and

    live with my mom dad younger brother and cat at home Both of my parents were in the military my mom in the Air Force and dad a class of 88 CGA graduate That inherently influenced my decision but did not add any pressure to come here The choice was easily made after I visited over 24 civilian colleges and could not seem to find the right fit I wondered what was missing from these schools and then I looked more into the Coast Guard Academy That is when I realized that it was the lifetime of devotion to others exciting opportunities and rewarding future in the Coast Guard that set it apart from the rest I am a member of the soccer team here and I m majoring in Marine and Environmental Sciences Being a school focused on engineering it is one of the unique majors the Academy has to offer However it is equally important because I feel that a large part of keeping the people safe is keeping the planet safe Everything about the Academy so far has been a challenge and in just one year I have already grown to appreciate each day and each new

    United States Coast Guard Academy On top of academics I spend my time playing football and baseball on our varsity teams Go Bears This provides a great chance to escape the ordinary routine of the Academy and compete While there is no part of me that regrets coming to the Academy it can truly challenge any proven individual For motivation stepping back and contemplating your decision to attend one of the nation s military academies always helps For me I wanted something different I came here for the adventure of a lifetime one that doesn t end at graduation but begins Old friends often look at us strangely for subjecting ourselves to a grueling four years at the Academy Why not though It was their choice to get a degree in an ordinary way We made the conscious decision to become part of a small community forming one of the best teams in the world And I know that s a part of what makes us special Coming to the Academy may mean leaving home and family You re not alone You ll be joined by hundreds of like minded individuals from all over the world Soon you ll find
