I joined the corps with no idea what I was getting into, and it’s turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. I’ve met new people, acquired tons of new job skills and a much better work ethic. I’ve become a stronger individual, who is not afraid to stand out. As well as getting that adventure I was yearning for.”
