Hello everybody. Thanks for reading this, I'll try to keep it short.
I am 17 years old, and I did not receive a normal, steady, education because of moving around so much all the time as a kid. I finally learned fractions last year, and am now on algebra and geometry. I am learning really quickly, and according to a lot of people I am getting the hang of things exceptionally fast.
My parents do not support me joining the Navy. They're 100% against it so I will not be receiving any help. I will not be able to enroll in any college because we can't afford it, so I was set on USNA, untill I learned that it is extremely difficult to get into and has high standards. I was not involved in and team sports or extracurricular things like that. I am worried that I will have a grain of sand on a beaches chance of being accepted.
So I am wondering, is there anybody here who can work with to ensure I am getting the the best education possible, and have the best chance possible of being accepted into either USNA or ROTC.
I am pretty much teaching myself, but I promise I am doing everything I can do advance. I might be a bit behind do later to the rest of the world but if I am given a chance, I promise I will exceed you expectations. I am completely committed to this.
Last night I broke down and cried, extremely unlikely me, and it wasn't because I am weak. It's because I realized that no matter what, I will most likely never be able to do this unless I had help, people who can reference me, people who can support me. I'm alone in their, but I woke up with a plan to find someone who would give me their best shot at this.
If at all possible, I am looking for someone who did well in the Navy, and could give me a sort of "foot in the door" boost.
I am on Facebook if anybody is wondering, but please try to stick to this site so my parents don't find out.
Thank you so much for reading this. I appreciate it more than I can say.
Btw, I am studying for a GED, and out of curiosity I took two online asvabracite tests. I got average of 87 if I combine the results of each.
There are many ways to becoming an Officer, if that is your goal. If you post on "Moms of Officers" you should get some great input.
