What makes the Cadet stand out among his/her peers?

Why did you join Army ROTC?
I joined Army ROTC to refine my leadership skills and see if I have what it takes to be successful within the military. I am not sure what I want to branch, but I know I want my military service to complement my work as a civilian.
Who motivates you as a leader?
I am motivated by the cadets around me. Not only do I want to compete, but I also want to elevate my peers so that we may succeed together. This motivation drives me everywhere from the classroom to the STX (Situational Training Exercise) lanes.
How do you manage Army ROTC and your other college commitments?
I have found that managing ROTC and a college life can be done through effective time management. For me, that means working on homework early in the morning when I am mentally productive and saving the evening for social activities and sleep.
