Good Evening. I've collected quite an interest in the NROTC shcolarships over the past few years since I was twelve. It has finally dawned on me at the age of sixteen that I needed to take school seriously and that in order for me to ever achieve goals such as enlisting in one of the most competitive programms in the military I had to mature and start taking care of myself. My current situation is a bit stifiling and overwhelming. I am faced with a need to serve my country but also gain an education that will benefit me. Where my problem lies as of now is I have no confidence in my abilities such as leadership, communication skills, and commulitive knowledge. I struggeled through my first two years of highschool due to half-heartedly doing my assignments which is why I'm hesitant about if I'll ever be capable of passing any of the requirements to be accepted to the NROTC scholarship funding. I'll be back at 3:45 P.M. GMT-6 Central to finish typing this. For now I have to return to classes.
