Describe why you enjoy math: It’s a subject about codebreaking and logic.

Describe how you anticipate using math in your future: I plan to major in Mathematics in college, and possibly move on to Economist or Actuary.

I have been involved in my community through the following service projects: (Not limited to) Civil Air Patrol, Wreaths Across America, Emergency Services training, working security at community events, Vacation Bible School staff, nursery/PreK assistant, church usher.

My favorite project was: Wreaths Across America, because: Not only did we have the honor of placing the wreaths on veteran’s graves, as did many other members of the community, but we spent the year working to raise funds from various communities to purchase the wreaths. I enjoyed being out in the community, meeting people, and making them aware of the Wreaths Across America program.

I have set the following goals for myself for the next:

  • 1 year: Attain my Armstrong and Mitchell promotions in Civil Air Patrol.


  • 5 years: Air Force ROTC, hopefully a scholarship.

My parents have inspired me to consider: The Air Force.

My favorite subject in school is, or has been: Mathematics and Poetry.

My favorite extra-curricular activity is, or has been: Hiking and biking. Last year I had the opportunity to hike Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon, the Vermillion Cliffs, and the Valley of Fire.

The most challenging thing I have ever experienced is: Breaking a minute in the 100 yard Freestyle.

My greatest accomplishment to date has been: Completing the New York Wing 2019 Cadet Leadership Encampment at Stratton Air National Guard Base.
