    What is it like to be a military linguist?

    Jessica wanted to be a military linguist in the Navy but by a turn of events related to an issue around a security clearance, she got reassigned to Aviation Admin in the middle of her Boot Camp training. Surprisingly the career field of being an Aviation Admin gave her opportunities to travel and learn about how the Navy operated. When she eventually cross-trained to become a Linguist she found out she actually enjoyed being an admin more.

    Maintainer to Photographer - Trish Alegre-Smith

    One way to learn about the military is by walking up to people in uniform and ask them. And that is what Trish Alegre-Smith did. In this interview, we dive into what you can gain from military service through hearing Trish's experience. And while the military builds character and often pushes you beyond what you think you can do. I don't think that it brings something out of you that you don't already have. It just pushes it through and helps you grow. That quiet confidence of a young high schooler walking up to strangers was there before service. But the Air Force helped push it forward in a new way. Check out her story now.

    Advice from women who have served - Part 2

    Advice from women who have served - Part 2

    What can females do in the military? The answer is, if they can dream it they can do it. Today’s military has open doors for women. They still have to meet standards and may not qualify for all jobs, but they can not be discriminated against because of their gender. Each week I interview a woman who has served in the military. And this week I have pulled together their advice from their military experience and they are sharing their advice for women.

Sharing stories..love it!

I love how Amanda brings different guests on the show to show their perspectives and highlight their stories. Everyone has a story, and if you’re like me, it’s interesting to hear but it helps me in my own understanding and growth as I can relate to those stories.

A Genuine Look into the Experiences of Military Women from all Walks of Life

Amanda is dedicated and passionate about bringing a wide variety of women’s stories to light. She has a low-keyed way of turning women’s experiences into compelling stories. She has put together an impressive library of stories, and there are leadership nuggets waiting to be discovered in each episode. I highly recommend this impactful podcast!
