Hi! My name is Olivia Chang and I’m from Queens, New York. I like Pokémon, playing the guitar and I can always go for a PB&J. I’m a first-generation American, so the military was a new thing for my family. Nevertheless, I made the right choice in the Academy and am thankful for every day I spend here.
My interest in the Academy started during my junior year of high school, when the prospect of college was getting closer and closer. At the time, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my life so I went to AIM; just for kicks. However, that was where the base of my desire to come to the Academy was made. Then, after an arduous four months of application work, I received a conditional appointment to the Academy via the CGAS program, where I was sent to Georgia Military College for a year. Despite my initial disappointment at not getting a direct appointment, my year at prep school was awesome and has helped me make my time so far at the Academy awesome as well.
