Thanksgiving is such an important time of the year for cadets. It marks the end of the semester and the beginning of finals week. I have to say, having this semester wind down to an end came up a lot faster than I expected it to! It seems like everyone has been rushing all semester that we never actually stopped to look back on all that we’ve done. This year is definitely a lot different than 4/c year in the sense that there is more academic work, and that we also have 4/c looking up to us. It is a totally different perspective, but one that I know all of our class has enjoyed. I have seen my class grow in ways that I never thought that we could and it has been amazing to witness how people change throughout the course of one year.
I cannot wait until the next semester comes up! That means that we are just that much closer to being cadre and leading a summer experience and possibly changing somebody’s life. It will be interesting to see who rises up as a leader people look up to and who doesn’t. I have the utmost faith in my class though that we will continue to grow and learn from all the challenges and experiences we encounter.
