It's a class photo gone viral. 34 black female cadets standing on the stairs of West Point Academy, part of the most diverse class in the school's history. How does it feel to be a part of that history? There was just a very overwhelming feeling to see like all of our sisters, us just standing there in solidarity. These women have formed a sisterhood. That's also a support system. With more than nine hundred students in their graduating class, black women make up less than four percent. I hasn't always been pretty. When you say it hasn't always been pretty, what do you mean?
There are some moments here where you feel like, oh am I worthy, you know, do I deserve to be here. I definitely struggled sometimes because sometimes I'd be, like, the only woman in color or even women in general and in my, in my classes. Every time I step into a new class I can't and I'm like this is just me today. Something their classmates also want to change. We need different perspectives in our army. That's what makes us better cadets and will make us better leaders. Leaders for the next generation. What do you hope other little girls who are watching you graduate take away from seeing you here? I hope those girls can see themselves in us. I want women to be soldiers. I want these little black girls and say hey I can do it too. I have the strength to defy the odds which is what we did. We defied the odds.
