A goal of mine was to serve in the military and to complete higher education in order to work abroad. I spent three years working through community college in Miami and graduated with an Associate in Arts in International Relations in 2012. I joined the Marine Corps infantry following graduation and completed two deployments with my unit: 3/7, first to Sangin, Afghanistan, in 2013-2014, and later to the Baghdad Embassy Compound in 2015.
I discharged honorably in 2016 and, without any prior experience in Arabic, moved to Fez, Morocco, for six months to study the language and experience the culture. I transferred to the Walsh School of Foreign Service that year, where I am majoring in Regional Studies-Middle East.
