At age 19 Laura G. knew she wanted to be successful in life, so she began her career in the Army Reserves. She had seen the positive impact of military life in her older brother who had served and also wanted to be able to attend college without accruing debt. The military not only provided her with a stable lifestyle to reach her goals, but it also gave her the skills she would need to be successful in the civilian world once she transitioned.
After immigrating to the United States, Maria had an immediate desire to give back to her new country. In addition to that overarching goal, she also saw the incredible career opportunities the military can provide to service members who take advantage of the training they receive for their future civilian professions.
