Sussex, NJ - Class of 2025 Major: Marine and Environmental Sciences
Emma Deery


Hi there! My name is Emma Deery, and I’m currently a 4/c cadet at the United States Coast Guard Academy. I’m from Sussex, New Jersey, and I have an older brother and identical twin sister. I graduated from high school in 2020 and completed a year of self-prep at Massachusetts Maritime Academy before receiving my acceptance for the Class of 2025.

I am majoring in Marine and Environmental Sciences and I am also on the Women’s Rugby team, Chorale & Fairwinds, Ski & Snowboard Club, and more! Spectrum, APAC, International Council, Genesis, and Women’s Leadership Council are also some of the awesome affinity councils I am part of.

I have wanted to attend the Academy ever since my freshman year of high school, and often have to pinch myself to make sure I’m here! I can’t wait to share my cadet experience with you, and I hope that my stories will convince you to learn more about our nation’s Coast Guard or even apply to the Academy.

If you have any questions, or just want to chat, I’d love to hear from you! You can reach me at [email protected]!
