“At an early age, the Young Marines set me on a path to success. The Young Marines helped me develop leadership skills which I continue to use in my professional life. The youth organization also instilled a duty to serve others. The experience I am most thankful for, however, is the opportunity to work on teams where diversity is the norm."
