“Almost all of my cousins ended up joining the military because they either flunked out of college or because they didn’t have the desire to attend. I wanted to have a future other than joining the service, and have always been pushed by my parents to go to a good college to better my future, and therefore, I worked hard to make this opportunity available to me.”
