Angel Herrera was born in the Dominican Republic with Spanish heritage and now lives in NYC as a sophomore at the High School for Media and Communications. He spends most of his time with his friends and family, shooting pictures, exercising and being a part of the NJROTC program at his school. At home he spends time studying and playing video games. When Angel graduates from High School he wants to go to college and pursue a career in the Navy as an engineer.
Many people have a perception of the military based on violence and war. While this is a part of military life, the people who make up the military are still human beings like the rest of us. They like to have fun and enjoy their life without being strict or violent. With my project I want to portray the lives of cadets in JR. ROTC as regular people, within a military environment.
