On the 22nd of July, 2019, I have officially sworn in with the @usarmy For reasons which I can’t explain in a short message, God has lead me to serve. For a long time now, the calling for service has been on my heart, and for a long time I have neglected this feeling. Maybe because of self doubt, lack of courage, the chance of failure... all reasons that the devil will tell you, that “you’re not good enough”, simply because he wants to keep you down. NO MORE. The Lord has given me the courage, to walk into a recruiters office, and follow through on this calling for service. I do not take this responsibility lightly. I do not take this calling for service lightly. I will not take it for granted. Fighting for, and serving my country, alongside like minded individuals from different walks of life, is something, some just won’t understand. At the end of this ceremony, when my mother embraced me in her tears of joy, being proud of her son, broke me down as well. Today marks a chapter in my life, that makes me honored, and proud, to serve my country. I am humbled by this experience.

Forever grateful for my supportive parents. For the friends who have supported me along this journey. For the success and failures that have made me strong, if it wasn’t for these life experiences, I wouldn’t be where I am today.
Thank you for being here, and for the support you all have shown me. A mans success is determined by the people he has, supporting him.
