 Hello all, My name is Raven and last year I graduated with a BSCJ and had a lot of plans to be a cop, I've needed them a time or two in my childhood and wish to pay it forward, to be a good influence and protect the community and was strongly influenced by my dad and grandfather who were both MP's in the Air Force.


Unfortunately it's been a rough year before I graduated, during my internship actually, as I was applying for their upcoming academy I injuried my knee which has only recently stopped aggravating me when I walk up and down stairs or over use it. Also discovered I had thyroid cancer and had to have surgrery.


In the meantime I've been working at the local hospital a Level 2 trauma center in a major city as a security officer which has given me some much needed experience. 


The department I interned for has another academy starting in January but after failing big time on something as simple as push up's (How I loath them!) it's hard to get motivated to push myself back into shape. But I did sign up for Krav Maga classes a few months ago to help as I figured it was more fun than going to gym and more useful than Zumba and have slowly been getting back on track to where I want to be.

 Thank you for the warm welcome, I live in Greenbsoro, and so far I am cancer free. My Dr. told me that if you had to get cancer Thyroid cancer was the best kind to get, very treatable and non aggressive all I had to do was have it taken out and take a radioactive iodine therapy to kill off any other thyroid cells and will have to have check up's every 6 months just to be sure it doesn't come back have to take thyroid replacement horomones every day but other than that it hasn't been an issue 


I did my internship with GPD and really have enjoyed being here but I do want to look at other places and take more time to really find a department and a location that is a good fit for me. Not that I still don't love Greensboro or GPD but I'm not going to limit my options.
