Taking on a Different Role

(The Cadet Experience, Class of 2014) Permanent link   All Posts
  Brianna Townsend Second semester if flying by, which I could not be any happier about because it means that I will be that much closer to taking my first leadership position at the Academy as cadre. Taking a new position in the corps is always frightening at first, but with the right training and teachers you can take on any role. I think that what has prepared me the most right now is my own cadre that I had when I was a swab. They taught me the right way to work as a team and be a leader, even under extreme stress. I am very thankful for those people in my life because they made me a better person and I definitely would not have been able to make it this far without them.

In the nearer future lacrosse season is starting, and I could not be any more excited about it. This year is looking very good for the team with the majority of the team returning from last year and a lot of new 4/c with an immense amount of talent. However, due to the amount of 1/c that graduated last year it is looking like I may have to take a new position on the field, but with the help of my coach and other players, I should be able to adapt and succeed in this new spot. Hopefully the weather will remain as it has been so we can enjoy the springtime inside rather than playing outdoors, but either way I am just glad to play.
