Hello! I am Cameo Ulbricht, born and raised in Washington State. I come from a small town in southwest Washington, which in my opinion, one of the best places to live. I have a younger brother and two dogs at home. Some of my hobbies include camping, scrapbooking, reading, listening to music and baking. I enjoy running cross country and playing basketball too! Being the first in my family to join the military, I have a strong support system at home, which is helpful when I have rough days.
Before coming to the Academy, I spent a year at New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, New Mexico as a scholar for the Academy. The extra year was beneficial in preparing me as a cadet at the Academy. The course load was just as tough, and a lot of the military side of things was similar. It was difficult at first being far from home, but having the friends I became close to was helpful. The friends you make at the Academy will help you get through a lot of the hard times, but also there to celebrate your accomplishments. One encouraging thing to know is that you will always have someone to turn to when you need help, or a good laugh.
Good luck as you continue your college search!
