Motivating young people to be better citizens is one of the basic principles of JROTC, but it is more than just a motto to me. It has become my personal mission statement. Not being someone most teenagers would choose to hang out with, I found a strong group of peers in the JROTC program together with caring and supportive adult leaders. JROTC gave me the foundation to focus on leadership skills, the opportunity to serve others by completing many hours of community service, and most importantly; the feeling of acceptance.
