Month of the Military Child

There were difficult times growing up. I always wished that I could live in one spot and have the same friends since Kindergarten. However, I would not change my childhood for anything. I got to spend weekends skiing in the Alps, live on West Point and pick berries on Mt. St. Helen. It definitely made me the person I am today: hard working, honest, resilient, and stubborn. And inspired my love to travel!
