(Why AIM) Permanent link   All Posts
Elliot Lee

AIM…That acronym by itself packs a punch. It envelops the physical and mental toughness that individuals have to face while learning about the Coast Guard Academy. Adding on, there will be lots of cadet candidates that I will have to compete with to present the best of myself.

It seems like a lot when you look at the details and the possible futuristic outcomes, but I believe that you just have to go with the flow. Don’t worry about how others perceive you and have fun. Be yourself! Keep it in check though. Even with a competitive and rugged week of summer heat, I think I’m going to be looking forward to all the new people I’m going to meet. As a developing leader, I want to consider what others believe in on different topics. This helps give me a broader spectrum of the world in which we live in, taking into account what others have to say.

With this AIM session coming up, I am more excited than worried about what the future holds. I countdown every day, hour, minute, and second until the day I can leave Washington state and head over to Connecticut for my AIM session.
