Preparing for Life through NMMI
Among many things the institute can prepare you for one of the biggest preparations the school has given me is the preparation for life outside the institute. Being a five-year cadet I have been able to completely absorb the life skills the institute sets out to instill in every cadet. First is Time Management, a skill not many people can say they truly have down, Being able to balance school, activities, the military lifestyle, and maintain a personal life is now second nature. Second, the ability to take a step back and analyze the situation, think about the possible actions and outcomes and make a sound decision on my actions is a huge skill the institute has taught me. Finally, the institute has taught me the ability to be confident in my actions and not second guess myself. Five years ago I was afraid of my shadow, now after years of training and exposure to situations where I must rise and take charge of people, I can confidently command a group of my peers, take imitative in a stressful situation and solve the issue. Ultimately the institute has transformed me from a 14-year-old afraid of life, to a confident 19-year-old ready to take life by the horns, and rise to the challenge that is my future.
