NOVA is my hometown school. I was in the army for about 12 years, so I've been all over the world. I decided to come back here and pursue my education goals. Right now I'm following the basic science degree program and I want to transfer to George Mason and be a part of their Atmospheric Science program. I've wanted to be in the meteorology field since I was a kid.
I work at the Veterans Office helping veterans process the paperwork for their education benefits. We're in the process of starting a student veterans’ organization. The purpose of the organization is for veterans to have a voice in school activities and student government.
