Introductions!

Hi All, So my intro will be slightly different than most of yours, as I'm just starting my military journey right now. I was an OCS candidate with OCC 236 at MCBQ, which started mid Jan 2021. I had completed 7 1/2 out of 10 weeks of training before getting dropped for NPQ. I'm 2 weeks out and on crutches for the next week, but am on the mend and will head back to OCS Sep 2021. In the meantime, I work in EMS as an EMT and ambulance operator (and am on the hunt for other jobs where I can be an asset and serve others). I'm a huge gym and outdoor junkie (when not on crutches), love hiking and exploring, do a lot of creative work on the side (photography, painting, typography, graphic design), enjoy reading, and just about anything that utilizes my hands. I graduated from Regent University in '18 with B.A. in Politics and History, minor in International and Homeland Security. While currently working in EMS, I've held numerous jobs since age 16 to includ assistant Dir of Chickfila, manager for Parks and Rec, Media Relations Rep for a law firm, bartender, photographer, barista and coffee shop manager, and event medic. I strive to be an asset and am passionate about leading by example. I want to constantly leave folks better than I find them. I've lived in the NoVa my entire life and am currently located here, if anyone is interested in meeting up, training, working out, or wants to know some good spots to hike, eat, drink, etc. I've been following along with PB Abbate since it's start and love these forums. I realize I'm not part of the military yet, but barring death or serious injury I'm doing everything in my power to complete training and become a USMC officer. Regardless, I'm grateful for this community and have already learned so much from so many of you. I have so much left to learn and am looking forward to what's ahead, humbled by the opportunity to learn from each one of you.
