  • “During Katrina I went to this school called Bonnabel with my great grandmother. There was this pregnant lady from Philadelphia there - she was like 8 or 9 months pregnant. And every day I gave my grandma my food and water and gave the lady my food and water. I would not eat, just give it to them. Until one day I just passed out. I fainted and just fell. When I finally came to there was this army guy. I grabbed his hand. He picked me up and was like ‘I understand you’re doing good. But to help everybody else you gotta be strong yourself. You gotta keep yourself hydrated, keep yourself full so you can keep helping everybody like you’re doing. You’re doing a great job,’ he said, ‘The army would love to have a person like you.’ So that’s what inspired me to join the National Guard.”
