    my cadet career The past two years at the Coast Guard Academy and in the Coast Guard has been incredible and I know absolutely that I am happier here than I probably would have been at any other college or university What makes it so great is the people I ve met here and the opportunities that I ve been privileged to participate in I ve built great friendships with people here whether it s the students in my major s classes or in the clubs and activities I do I have been introduced to some pretty cool individuals My major is Operations Research and Computer Analysis ORCA which simply put is applied math I started my time at the Academy as a Marine and Environmental Sciences major but decided that the ORCA major was more to my liking in terms of academic pursuits But the Science Department hasn t seen the last of me I still regularly visit Smith Hall our science building to work with one of the physics professors on an independent study lab I m working with him and a few other cadets to establish a fully functioning plasma lab plasma as in the fourth state of matter not part of blood in which we can do research to contribute to the research of larger labs across the world In terms of activities I m involved with Officers Christian Fellowship OCF which has become one of the most important aspects of the Academy for me I m a member of the leadership team so I can serve my classmates by helping to organize events and other aspects of the OCF club we have at the Academy I m also a member of the Sustainability Club which strives to improve the Academy s ecological impact by introducing

    high school and was originally disqualified by the DoD Lets see the basics about me Have played most every sport football baseball water polo but have settle in as a boxer at the Academy love superheroes video games and if it didn t make me obese I would eat pizza every day for every meal So the reason I joined the cadet blog community this year is because I think I can offer the reader good insight from a cadet who has really gone through an uphill battle at the Academy I think by reading my blogs you will get an honest point of view and hopefully be somewhat interested while reading them I think I will start off in my about section with a little background of my time at the Academy I would like people to know where I am coming from and understand a little about my cadet experience before they start to read my blogs Okay so my story starts at Swab Summer when I first reported in I will admit I was shell shocked by the whole boot camp experience and lost a little bit of who I was after I first started the school year Reminder to those who report in on R Day don t forget where you came from and that you are a person My first year 4 c year at the Academy was a struggle to be put mildly I was put on fitness probation received numerous failing grades and was restricted for an altercation with a classmate not a good start I can t say my 3 c year was much better as I tore my shoulder continued to struggle in school and lacked the military deportment a cadet should have Lucky for me however one day I was beaten up Yes that s right beaten up in the heavyweight championships in the first annual regimental open for the Coast Guard Academy Boxing Team I actually fought my cadre someone who yells at and trains you over your Swab Summer and was just outmatched in weight strength and endurance I tried to make excuses in my mind as to why I lost bad game plan he was older I was injured but the truth was simple I didn t work hard enough No it wasn t just the couple months of training before the fight when I hadn t worked hard enough it started the beginning of 4 c year I left Swab Summer with the mentality that I had survived and that s all I had to do for the next four years at the Academy After losing that boxing match I think something inside of me clicked The intrinsic motivation that we all have deep inside of us was lit and ever since then I have just been going up and up I can t say the path has been easy and I have had numerous setbacks But today I type before you as the Echo Company
