With High Risk Comes High Reward

(Choosing the Coast Guard Academy, Overcoming Challenges, Class of 2018) Permanent link   All Posts
Gerton Photo As I mentioned briefly in my profile, the Academy is an extremely rewarding place. This comes from, as the saying goes, the high risk associated with it. It however is not a bad sort of risk. The risk comes from entering a life that you probably don’t know much about beforehand. The risk of coming here was a world of unknowns, but I have been rewarded so greatly that I want to share those rewards and experiences that have led me to where I am today and those that have helped shaped me into who I am today.

 

I want to blog to be able to share my experiences from my time at the Academy with those interested in coming here. I hope that through sharing my experiences I can possibly decrease the risk of coming here for those interested, without decreasing the reward. Honestly, I have gone through so many amazing but also some very challenging experiences while here at the Academy and I am still very happy with my decision to come here and hope that I can influence the cadets of the future.
