no experience in any type of service
I accidentally came across the United States Naval Academy late last year. I was cleaning my email, and I received a notification from them that I could apply to be a candidate for their Candidate visit weekend. My dream for my future was to go to my state's college, Rutgers New Brunswick, in New Jersey. After I graduated college, I wanted to help amputees, specially veterans and create prosthetics for them. Then, after my visit to the Naval Academy, I realized one important thing. I didn't have any experience in any type of service, I didn't know how their lives would change, so how could I help them becoming whole again?
I know it is in my future to help people, and the Naval Academy can help me become the best that I can, so I can help others and my country become the best that they can be as well. I hate being idle, being on the sidelines and not being able to do anything when I see someone in need. I firmly believe in service before self, and many of my ideologies are in line with the Academy's as well. I could try to fit in any college and in nearly any career,, but the Naval Academy could become my home, somewhere I do not have to try to fit in because I already do. I visited the Academy for two short days, and it felt like somewhere I needed to be. To me and many others like me, it's a school that's more than just a college, and I understood that no matter how challenging it may be to earn admission to, no matter how challenging Plebe summer or the college classes are, I belong there. The Naval Academy is where my future starts.
Any tips or things I should change ?
