My name is Lindsay and I’m from a small town in New Hampshire. I have a younger brother who is a junior in high school as well as a younger sister in sixth grade. I’ve lived in the same town my entire life, but I’ve travelled to a few different countries and really enjoyed experiencing their culture.
Even though my hometown is about two and a half hours away from New London, Connecticut, I had never even heard of the Academy until the summer of my junior year of high school. I was looking to be recruited for soccer and the women’s coach responded to one of the emails I sent out. I looked into what exactly CGA was, and I’m glad I did. I never before thought about joining any branch of the military, but coming here was probably the best decision I could have made for my future.
This past summer was definitely a challenge, but you make awesome friends and accomplish things you never knew you could. It’s a great and rewarding experience for anyone who wants to be a part of something greater than themselves.
