She continues, "My career goal in life is to become an Information Technology Manager with a concentration in Multi Media and Web Development."

SGT Kornegay states, “I have this gravitational pull toward the arts. I cannot explain it, this urge that makes me want to create, to be creative! The most logical career that came to mind in this fast moving technological society is computers. I'll be able to keep up with the fast times and still incorporate my creative side. I have begun to notice in life that there are many road blocks ahead. Making a big life change is pretty scary. But, know what’s even scarier? Regret!

People always tell me to find a way around these road blocks I have encountered. But that is not the way to do it; I must take that road block and turn it into a stepping stone to reach my fear, then ultimately overcome that fear. So here I am, facing my fear, pushing aside all of the reason why this deployment is wrong for me and while earning my Bachelor Degree.”

We wish SGT Kornegay the best of luck in all of her endeavors! She is an inspiration and our Angels are excited about the opportunity to support Team G32 Aviation "Throat Punch!"
