Almost 8 years ago I stepped onto the yellow footprints in Parris Island, SC. I was about to start a rigorous 13 – week training to become a United States Marine. Today, I am proud to call myself a United States Marine Corps Veteran.
Many have asked, how I was able to complete the training and serve my country? Well, the answer is quite simple – Strength.
Strength Has No Gender™and here’s why: The women that were standing next to me that day were brave, selfless, and resilient. They are the definition of a true SHEro. Not all heroes are males. Female Marines make up a very small percentage of the United States Military, and I am honored and proud of my service. It was life-changing.
For 13 weeks, I was pushed and challenged every single day. It was the hardest thing I had to do in my life but the platoon and I formed a sisterhood. We were in it together and were made stronger because of it. When one of us were down, we were all down. It was our job to keep each other accountable and fight for one another.
Women can be overlooked because we work in male-dominated industries but I’m here to tell you that you can break down that barrier. We are smart, bold, strong, and fierce!
