Myname is Brian Eric Anthony Craig II and I was born on the 10th of November,2000 in Wurzburg, Germany. I was born unto my father, Brian E.A Craig and mymother, Joyce Craig. Both of which I currently live with. My dad retired fromthe Army after 20 years and now he currently works on Fort Bragg, as a criminalinvestigative analyst.
My mom also retired from the Army after 22 years and nowshe currently works on Fort Bragg, as one of the head nurses at the Womack ArmyMedical Center. I had a happy, childhood as an only child, leaving mewhat some people call “spoiled”. However, my childhood was far from normal, atleast the beginning was. As mentioned before, I was born in Germany. Soon aftermy birth doctors discovered that I had a heart defect. This defect is called a ventricularseptal defect (VSD). A ventricular septal defect is a condition in which thereis a hole in the septum between the heart’s two lower chambers. This had aprofound impact on my parents causing them to rush back to America to searchfor the best treatment.
Eventually, my parents found the best medical at that timethat could treat my condition.My educational career started in Fayetteville, NorthCarolina. I attended Middle Creek Creative Schools for Pre-k; I attended LakeRim Elementary School; I attended Seventy-First Classical Middle School; and I currentlyattend Cumberland International Early College High School. I have thoroughly enjoyedevery school I have attended. Each school provided me with a new perspective inwhich to see the world, at large. Last summer, my current high school presentedme an opportunity to travel to Europe for two weeks. I traveled to Germany,Czech Republic, Austria, and Poland. Within these two weeks, my classmates and Iexplored the rich history of the Holocaust.
This experience left a mark and alasting impact on my life. After the completion of high school, I want to eitherattend the University of North Carolina at Charlotte or the University of NorthCarolina at Chapel Hill. My goal is to major in international studies with a concentrationin health and I want to minor in Arabic. My career goals is to become arenowned epidemiologist and to work at the Center of Disease Control either inWashington, DC or Atlanta, Georgia. I am certain that my degree will become myticket to a better tomorrow.
