About a couple weeks prior to the start of the school year, I received an email about the COB Mentoring Program. It was at that moment I knew this would be my opportunity to set out on a journey to achieving my personal goals. Not only did I believe that the program would help me meet new people, but I knew that it could help me be more of that confident, charismatic person I wanted to become. Because of the COB Mentoring Program I've met so many amazing people that I know I'll stay in touch with even after my college years. I've met my closest friend through the program who is now my roommate.

My fourth grade teacher, Mrs. Mackey made a positive effect on my life. She was a very impactful teacher who even today I speak to often. She went above and beyond to ensure that her students were achieving in her classroom. Mrs. Mackey had a relationship with every student in her class and kept up with us through our middle school and high school years.

My most recent and relevant experience is my job I had in USD 253 as a substitute teacher. This job was perfect because I was able to gain experience from kindergarten through 12th grade.

During the 17 years of my family providing this service, I have helped with activities, food preparation, campfire programs, and general supervision. Three years ago, I began leading a discussion group so that every girl attending could have her questions and concerns addressed. The increased numbers of families attending each year are evidence our efforts have been successful. Last year, I decided I wanted to make an even larger impact.

Similar in nature, lesser offences such as tormenting are found in Susan Faludi’s writing, “The Naked Citadel”, where the student population contains cadets that are mentally unhealthy. Because The Citadel has an all male student body, it becomes easier for them to share the same distaste for females wanting to join The Citadel. The distaste that they carry for females is shown through the inhumane, continuous tormenting that the students inflict on each other. Susan Faludi describes some of these acts, where “The beaten knobs were the women, ‘stripped’ and humiliated, and the predatory upperclassmen were the men, who bully and pillaged” (85).
