Austin, TX - Class of 2024 Major: Electrical Engineering
Junna Castel


Hi, I’m Junna Castel and I am a 4/c cadet at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. I am from Austin, Texas and came to the Academy right out of high school. I have 3 younger sisters, and one younger brother who have mostly followed in my footsteps. Who knows, maybe during my cadre summer my sister will be a swab here at the Academy!

I am planning on majoring in Electrical Engineering. Also, I am trying out rugby for the first time, as well as hoping to compete in track and field as a pole vaulter and hurdler. I am hoping to become an active member in various affinity councils such as Spectrum, APAC, and Compañeros, and can’t wait to get involved in the endless number of clubs the Academy has to offer.

I am excited to be on the other side of blogging for the first time. Before Swab Summer, I spent 2 hours scrolling through all the blog posts trying to learn more about the Academy, and most importantly trying to get some insider tips for Swab Summer. I can’t wait to write all about whatever crazy adventures, or normal cadet life happens to occur while I am a cadet!

If you are interested in anything I post about, please feel free and reach out to me via email at: [email protected].
