Well, hello. My name is Sean V. Murphy from Sarasota, Florida. I first became interested in the Coast Guard Academy early in my high school career, and it soon became my number one school when time came to apply for colleges. I attended Pine View high school, where I pushed myself academically and athletically. For all four years, I rowed crew for the #1 team in the Southeast, the Sarasota Scullers.
I have always wanted to do something unique in my life, preferably something to do with public service. The Academy is my dream school, and my dream job is being a Coast Guard officer. I chose the Academy because of the opportunity to serve in the Coast Guard, to make life long friends, to do something different, and to challenge myself.
My favorite things to do are row, play ultimate frisbee, hang out at the beach with friends, spend time with my family, and watch the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles. My favorite bands include Pearl Jam, Linkin Park, The Killers, and Blink 182.
When looking at the Academy, I would always read the cadet blogs and get excited about attending a unique school with so many opportunities. I am looking forward to writing for you all, to show you about the Academy from the perspective of someone from the inside. There is no such thing as a stupid question, so please feel free to email me any questions at Sean.V.Murphy@uscga.edu.
