Hi everyone, I'm from the Knoxville, TN area. I come from a big family, 8 brothers and sisters, and I am second oldest and first to plan to go to college. My family and my pastor are actually pretty nervous about me going away to college "out in the world" so to speak but I feel it's the right thing for me to do. Anyway I'm about to start my applications to the academies and my Congressman and Senators, so if anyone has any tips let me know! Thanks!
