ABOUT BRUNA

Hello everyone! My name is Bruna Pavan and I am from sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where I grew up my entire life. I am the middle child of three—I have an older sister, Alexa, who recently graduated from the University of South Florida with degrees in Public Health and Biomedical Sciences, and a younger sister, Camilla, who is still in high school who swims and plays water polo. I grew up around boats all my life and my parents own a scuba diving business back home, so I have always been super comfortable being on the water.

Ever since I was as younger, I’ve always admired the Coast Guard for allowing me to feel safe whenever I went out fishing, scuba diving or cruising around the inlet. I could not picture a better career that would allow me to be on the ocean, serve my country, and protect what I hold so dear to my heart. I graduated high school in 2014, but I didn’t get accepted to the Academy my first time around. Still determined, I decided to attend a service academy prep school, Marion Military Institute, “self-prepped” and gave it another shot. With the help of an amazing faulty and a ton of hard work, I earned an appointment to the Great Class of 2019. That year was a rewarding experience that I will be forever thankful for, and it makes me appreciate this place so much more.

Here at the Academy, I play rugby and water polo with some of the greatest teammates a person could ask for! In my free time I love to lie in my hammock, hang out with friends, eat, and spend time at the Mystic Aquarium as a volunteer. I’m also very open and I love talking about this great institution so if you have any questions at all, feel free to email me at Bruna.M.Pavan@uscga.edu and I will get back to you ASAP!

Stay salty,
Bruna
