Hey, i was wondering if someone was nice enough to give me feed back on my two short response essays. 1. List your reasons for becoming a naval officer Minority leadership in the U.S. navy is tremendously low, but it is certainly not the navy’s fault; it is the people who are willing to step up, and take control, that deserve to hold a leadership position in the navy. Leadership in the navy is not a minute job, it takes dedication, loyalty, and most of all, respect for your peers. My diligent work in the aviation field corroborates my leadership abilities. Mohandas Gandhi once said “I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people;” leadership is not based off how physically robust one is, rather it is a trait most people find ambiguous. The concept of leading depends on loyalty, and intellectual prowess; both of which I have enhanced to better myself and my community. My vocational teachers always proclaim that I must act as I would do in a real life experience. Similarly, my performance as an AMT in my class requires role-playing, where people lives depend on me; to mitigate the stress of having this troublesome ideal, I work at my optimum level. Working amongst airplanes has always been something I have dreamt about; earning the rank of a naval officer will allow me to gain access to that opportunity. Similarly, my AMT skills along with my knowledge of aircrafts will enhance my ability to work amongst others more sufficiently. Working on airplanes require strict leadership, where every man has to be cooperative to perform a profound task. Most minorities are conformists. Only those who surpass their beliefs and take control, triumph. My year's training to become an AMT really showed me what it takes to be a leader; to coöperate fully with your peers in a coherent fashion. To transcend above the norm is a goal I will accomplish as a naval officer. 2. How might your background and experiences enhance the U.S. Naval Service? "Aim for the top. There is plenty of room there,” said Samuel Insull. This concept has been a part of my belief system, after my seventh grade science teacher first introduced it to me during a discussion which revolved around flight; at that moment I had an epiphany, to work diligently around aircrafts; whether it is to mend them to their original condition or to soar through the skies along them. However, simply dreaming about a goal would not mitigate the diligent process of achieving it. Similarly, the day I set foot in Aviation High School surpassed my previous efforts at achieving my goal. The FAA qualifies Aviation High School to create future AMT’s; a A. & P. license qualifies a person to perform maintenance to an aircraft. When I realized the great opportunity bestowed on me, I knew I could not muddle my chances at achieving my goal. I took a course called engineering, which went over the basis for flight and aircraft operation; which enhanced my knowledge of general aviation, and the principles that revolve around flight. Similarly, the school prepared me with a wide range of maintenance classes which consisted of sheet metal, fabrics, composites, and wood. However, simply working with mock-ups doesn’t give the gist of working around airplanes. Mock-ups went away during my senior year; the hangar that our school harness’ allow students to get a real life experience of working around airplanes. Similarly, I realized that my interest was not really on commercial aviation; however I had a keen interest for military aviation; the two branches that dealt with aircrafts were the Navy and the Air-force. Fortuitously, naval recruiters visited our school; their impression on our vocational program left a positive impression. My airframe and Power plant experience was very well appreciated by the naval officers. Similarly, they discussed how beneficial A. & P. licenses are to the Navy. After extensive research, I decided that the navy was the right choice for me. Harnessing the basic knowledge of aircrafts before joining a field concerning aircrafts enhances my abilities at performance, both physically (Mechanical) and mentally. Aviation High School accentuated my knowledge of aircrafts. The skills gained through these vocational courses enhanced my ability to get a career in an aviation related field. The endless hours spent learning new concepts really paid off in the end, when I earn my A. & P. license that will ultimately help reach my dreams. Thanks in advance!
