I have grown into the woman I am today because of my past and I would not change it, for anything. I was born in December of 1983 in Anderson, South Carolina. My mother named me after a robin bird that landed on her hospital room window. At birth, I had a rare liver disease and had to undergo emergency surgery. The doctors called me a miracle baby because of the high death rate percentage. During most of my life, I stayed in South Carolina. I went through 11th grade and then moved to Delaware. I transferred high schools, found a job, got a car and my own apartment. After September 11, 2001 happened, I ended up moving closer to home. I lived in Georgia, Sacramento and Phoenix until I got accepted to NMSU. I then moved to Las Cruces, New Mexico. I completed two full years at NMSU and had a job as a correctional officer. In 2007, my mother got sick and I moved back to South Carolina. I had to provide for my mother and when she started to get better, I decided to join the Army. I enlisted in 2009 and am currently stationed in Fort Carson, Colorado. I am not happy where I am in my career right now, that is why I am continuing my education with Ashford University.
