I am a Specialist in the Mississippi Army National Guard. I enlisted in 2013 and am currently deployed overseas. My dream has always been to live in the DC Suburbs, and to work there and start my life. I am currently 23 years old with some college under my belt. I enlisted not only to serve my country, but also to receive funding for college. I am managing to remain a full time student while deployed which is resulting in 18 hours days sometimes. I am requesting funding to help me have the means to successfully move to DC and live out my dreams.
