“My time in the Corps has helped shape me into who I am today. I came into my freshman year quite timid and afraid to get out of my comfort zone. During these four years, I have been able to learn a lot about myself and leadership. I have had to adapt to many changes, specifically this year, coming into a new Major Unit. During this time I have learned to get out of my box, working in a new environment with new people. Overall, I think the Corps has helped me become stronger mentally and physically,” Anika said of her time in the Corps.
After graduation, Anika plans to move back to the Fort Worth area to work as a nurse. She also hopes to one day return to school for her master’s degree in nursing.
