Daniel Restrepo

“After high school I will be going to AIT for my job in the army as a 68 Juliet (Medical Logistics) then enrolling into UNG cadet admission. My job has helped me with my future career goals by teaching me self-discipline and organization. WBL has helped me towards my future career by helping me build my resume and helping me learn valuable lessons. I am planning on becoming a RN and then going AMED through the army and becoming a trauma nurse. I also plan on becoming an officer in the United States Army.


I have faced many challenges through my life and I believe the greatest one I have overcome is self-doubt. I learned through determination and dedication I can easily overcome my self-doubt. I would like to thank my teachers and mentors for always believing in me and helping me through anything I come to them with.”
