Hello! My name is Emily Sakowicz and I am from Brewster, New York. Not a well known place but it is an hour from the city and two from the Academy. When not picking me up from the train station, my mother and former Marine father live alone with my two dogs, Fios and Bristol. I have one younger brother who is currently attending Texas A&M.
I graduated high school in 2012, went to the Coast Guard Academy prep school in Marion, Alabama for a year and earned my appointment in the Class of 2017. I run 5Ks, am trying out for the Combat Arms Team and plan of doing Water Polo for the spring. I am an avid scuba diver, hiker and lay in a hammock-er.
When my nose isn’t in a book, I like to watch movies with my friends here; Mean Girls is my favorite! I’m excited to be at the Academy and to have you read my blog. Email me at Emily.R.Sakowicz@uscga.edu if you have questions or comments or concerns. Glad to have you interested in America’s best Academy. Go Bears!
