Like so many before me and after, my search for a better future led me to the Army. It was a scary prospect, but when I arrived at Ft. Leonard Wood, I was amazed at how many people were like me.
No, they weren’t all Black women, and no, they weren’t all from the suburbs of Philadelphia. But I was surrounded by people teeming with resilience and strength—soldiers who had overcome more challenges and obstacles than one person should have to—who supported one another and took pride in their work, down to the smallest of details. The Army wasn’t a lifelong calling for me, but its core values have been.
In my civilian career, I work for Comcast, a company guided by values instilled by our founder, U.S. Navy Veteran Ralph Roberts.
