Cece Hosley

My name is Cecelia Hosley and I am a 3/c cadet here at the Academy. I grew up in Chester, Connecticut and attended the Marine Science Magnet High School of Southeastern Connecticut. I would love to bring my passion for marine science, and the MES major to the Cadet Blog program.

I have wanted to be a marine biologist for as long as I can remember, sparked by my love of the sea while spending my summers on Martha’s Vineyard. When I was a junior in high school, Admiral Stosz, Academy Superintendent at the time, visited the school and I had the honor of showing her around. Learning about the Academy from her perspective as well as hearing about her leadership style and the opportunities in the Coast Guard made up my mind and I have been very happy with my decision.

I am thrilled to pursue a career in marine biology in the Coast Guard and have begun a directed study on orca whale populations in Puget Sound! I am also a member of the Equestrian Club and Women’s Leadership Council in addition to being a part of the Coast Guard Academy’s first-ever varsity women’s lacrosse team. Go Bears! Having been in the Coast Guard only one year I have already been blessed with some amazing opportunities and experiences such as my directed study topic, traveling to Hawaii and Bermuda, and sailing America’s tall ship, USCGC Eagle. I would love to share my experiences while I am here. It is an honor to be a voice for the United States Coast Guard Academy through the Cadet Blog program.
