Candidacy Statement

 I am sure that when most people think of a Board member, they seldom envision a young lieutenant not three years from graduation; however, I’m confident that I could serve in a capacity worthy of consideration. My desire to serve on the Board stems from my drive to support my fellow classmates and graduates. The mission of the AOG details offering support and leadership to the graduate community. I am eager to gain knowledge from the graduates that came before me, whose shoulders on which I gratefully stand. I am also committed to promoting graduate camaraderie through a lens commensurate with that of recent graduates. I offer a young, bright perspective. My growth as a millennial cadet and officer rests on the foundation of innovation. Truly, I want to learn and support and build. I am dedicated to fostering partnerships with cadets and graduates, and I would be honored to carry out that mission alongside my fellow graduates.
