Why did you enroll at MMA? A friend of mine enrolled at the Academy a year before I arrived and shared his experience with me. I decided it seemed like a place I would fit in, so I enrolled.

Why do you now attend MMA? Graduating from an American military school is prestigious for me and my family. I think that long-term, the MMA brotherhood will open doors for me.

What is the most important thing you have learned so far at MMA? Discipline will take you to places where motivation can't. 

What advice do you have for new cadets? Stop looking for excuses. The only way to excel is to make a name for yourself.

Is there anything you want other cadets to know about you? I am a hard worker, and as a leader, I look forward to setting the standard for my company.
