Hello everyone, A1C Bourdeau here. Currently an Airmen stationed at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, as Cyber Systems Operator. Looking into joining the Academy (or Prep School heh) through the LEAD program. Going to be retaking the ACT soon since I haven't done it since the beginning of my senior year of high school, scored a 26 on it without studying whatsoever . I think I did pretty well in high school both education and physically, graduated 5 out of 32 due to me not taking pre-ap classes my freshman year, and then one incident relating to a girl transferring into my class bumping everyone back a rank. I maintained a 3.84 GPA and took 7 honors/AP/Pre-AP classes since my sophomore year. I was on the Math and Science UIL team my junior and senior year and we went to Regionals each year in Math. Sports and club wise I played nearly every sport possible for the males besides golf, I played baseball my sophomore year, lettered in that, played football my junior and senior year and lettered in both, did the 400, mile relay, and high jump in track, lettered in that and made it to area in high jump my junior year and regionals my senior year. Also played basketball my junior and senior year, and again lettered in that (felt the best playing with my friends and on a team you could say haha). Every year but my freshman year I was in Student Council and FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), my senior year I was the Pride and Patriotism officer in student council. My junior and senior year I was in National Honor Society. Was also in Spanish Club for 3 years (10th-12th grade), was the seceratary my Senior year. So there is my creds you could say, not the greatest but average I think. I don't know if my rank will hurt me, hopefully it doesn't. More background info, whole family is/has been military, mom was active duty army and dad is currently a French officer equivalent to a Colonel (was he// trying to get my TS clearance let me tell you haha). Was also offered by my school counselor my junior year the chance to go to the Academy, I turned it down, wanted to experoence the enlisted side before I jump into becoming an officer. Feel slightly dumb for turning it down Tl;dr I want to rise above the rest and seize an opportunity I missed out before and help shape the world's greatest Air Force P.s I sent this with my iPhone seeing as gov computers won't allow you to login here.
