It makes me very proud that I have received this unique opportunity to serve this great country while simultaneously participating in track and field at the same time. Combining a military career with sports can be very challenging, since it requires balancing rigorous training and discipline of military service, however, it provides valuable opportunities for personal growth, teamwork, and leadership development.
