How did attending The Citadel help position you for success
The Citadel prepared me in so many ways. I grew as a person as well as a leader. The experiences while I was a cadet still follow me to this day. I have constantly been thrown in high stressful situations while In graduate school, however due to my time and experience as a cadet, I have been able to overcome many obstacles. I carry lessons from The Citadel into various aspects of my life, whether as a researcher, student, or friend. All of it centers around personal integrity and never compromising your integrity.
