On May 28, 2004 I reported to the United States Military Academy at West Point (which will affectionately be referred to as West Point) as a freshmen. This wasn’t the typical college experience, it was like college but with a lot Military… more like military life with textbooks. But unbeknownst to me it was more like military life in the 1950s, though I didn’t realize that until after I graduated. Though it was a difficult four years I loved it. I was a Latin American Studies Major and also studied computer science. My biggest take away from my time a West Point??? Well, it was that I could sing (more on this later). I learned a lot of other things too like how to speak Spanish & Portuguese, how to wear a 200 year old uniform and still look cool ;), and many leadership lessons and strategies that allowed me the success I did experience during my wonderful time on active duty.
On My 28, 2008 I graduated West Point and received a commission as a Signal officer and reported to my first duty station which was Ft Bliss in El Paso, Tx after about seven months of training. As a young LT in the Army I deployed to Iraq with a Signal company in an Armor Brigade. This was one of the most difficult experiences in my life, and not for the reasons one would expect. During my deployment I developed an eating disorder, which became one of the main struggles that I dealt with during the five years I spent on active duty. After my deployment I served in two more units where I went on to do great things in the Army ( pun intended, I did my job well but I wasn’t a hero or anything). I did start to become very interested in health and fitness. Mostly as a way to cope with the body image issues mentioned earlier but also because I wanted to better myself. I felt that if i truly had an understanding of how to live a healthy life I would be able to not only overcome my own issues but I could help those around me get more out of life.
So after 5 years on active duty (that’s a 9 year total military journey experience) I decided to get out of the Army and had NO CLUE what I wanted to do with myself. I had a lot of things that I liked and a few jobs that I thought I would enjoy doing for the rest of my life but ultimately decided that I wanted to own my own business. At first, I thought that I would start a bakery and later decided to pursue my passion… MUSIC!!! So naturally I joined a folk band and went to grad school. And NOW I enjoy not only music but marketing… so I help musicians market themselves and I make my own music. Currently, I am in a band with my sisters called Sisters Of Unbreakable Love (SOUL) and we currently have a signle out and are working on an EP. Click >here, to get our sweet updates! I also have my own line of handmade (by me) skin care, Brown Sugar by Kesha Janaan.
