A: A little bit of financial algebra and the computer class on PowerPoint/Word.

Q: When did you know you wanted to join the Navy?

A: Freshman year, when I attended Haines City High School I saw that my GPA was so low, I knew I probably couldn’t get into college and I was going into the military.

Q: How was your transition from graduating high school to go into the Navy?

A: I waited about 4 months after I graduated high school to officially go to boot camp so I had time to prepare. Boot camp isn’t for everyone, most people give up or get setback but I made it through in a breeze. 

Q: What is your role in the Navy and what is your long-term goal?

A: My long term goal is to retire in 20 years and to make rank as fast as possible.  Making rank is time based mostly but you can get promoted early. 

Q: As of right now where do you see yourself in the future?

A: Traveling the world and living my best life. With the navy I will be traveling a lot, so I’m trying to be stationed overseas so I can have fun and enjoy other cultures and traditions. 

Q: What’s something from four corners that you carry with you now that you graduated?

 A: My friends, because they were always there, they’re forever in my heart and I’m grateful I ended up there at Four Corners.
