Hello Everybody, I live in Cincinnati, Ohio and I am a senior in high school this year. I am an official USNA candidate and I received my nomination from my Congressman on December 8, 2011! My sister and her husband are both USNA graduates (class of '09 and '08 respectively). I saw my sister go to the academy a great leader and I saw her come out an even greater leader. I knew I had to do the same thing. I attended USNA Summer Seminar in the summer of 2011 and I loved every minute of it. It really felt like I accomplished something every day I was there. I definitely don't want that visit to be my last to the academy. I finished my application very early (in the summer before my senior year) and I had my BGO interview shortly after (he said I was the first in his region to have an interview with him). I am a good student, athlete, and community server and I would love to have the opportunity to attend the Naval Academy and graduate in 2016.
