After a month of settling into the new academic year, it’s time to turn back to the stories of our student bloggers.  Second-year students Scott, Mirza, and Roxanne have promised me updates in the next few weeks, and we’ll also be introducing two first-year students, Liam and Diane.  Diane’s first post is still in the works, so we’ll let Liam kick off the series this year.

Liam is a MALD student focusing on International Security Studies and International Negotiation and Conflict Resolution. In a self-intro, he notes, “I am a Captain in the U.S. Army attending Fletcher to broaden my professional and educational experiences as an infantry officer.  Since 2006, I deployed once to Iraq and twice to Afghanistan, leading organizations ranging from 18 to 230 soldiers.  I am originally from central Massachusetts, so Fletcher provides me with an opportunity to reconnect with family and friends after having moved nine times in the last eight years.  Outside of school, I am an avid runner and enjoy backpacking and the Pacific Northwest.”

I asked Liam to join the student blogger team after I enjoyed working with him last spring as he put together all the pieces to make attending Fletcher a reality.  In tomorrow’s post, Liam will talk about how he has managed his transition to life at Fletcher.
