A Rewarding Experience

(Choosing the Academy, The Cadet Experience, Class of 2020) Permanent link   All Posts

Having the opportunity to hear Major General Bolden speak to the corps was inspiring and rewarding. The moment he walked on the stage, Maj. Gen. Bolden made it clear that his presentation was to be informal and informative. His personal anecdotes paired with a powerful slideshow not only encouraged the progression of space exploration, but of international unity. He shared deeply emotional private stories and encouraged us all not to take for granted the opportunities we have at the Coast Guard Academy. It was truly an edifying experience, and I hope to utilize his quotes, stories, and suggested reads (Hidden Figures and We Are All the Same) to guide myself and possibly others through our cadet careers.
