"Hi good day, my name is Cadet Senior Master Sergeant Kyara Lewis. I attend the Charlotte Amalie High School in the 11th grade. I have been a part of the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program for 4 years. My favorite part about the cadet program is the drill and ceremony I love doing drill movements and playing tap out because I like to win. The advice that I would give to any upcoming cadet is to stay focus on everything that you’re doing, be extremely disciplined in everything that you do, and be very knowledgeable on the program. When I graduate I would like to continue with the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program so that I can advance my knowledge to get in to college with a scholarship coming from the Civil Air Patrol so that I can become a pediatrician."
