"Every day, we were exposed to many opportunities to meet extraordinary individuals who were well-versed in their fields and wonderfully willing to indulge every question we asked."
From the age of five, I have known what I want to be when I grow up: The President. As I got older, I filled in the details of how I would get there. I had a grand plan, every step of the way mapped out. There was just one detail that I was unsure of...whether I wanted to dedicate my life to public service. So as a junior in high school, from the little-known city of Lubbock, Texas, I attended the NYLF National Security program to see if my goals were the right fit for me. Now there isn't a doubt in my mind. When I leave for college, it will be with the utmost confidence that a double major in Political Science and International Affairs is what I should pursue.
