“My story begins, as most immigrant stories often begin, with a search for opportunity. Mine came when I moved from my country of birth, Ghana, to the United States with the main goal of furthering my education. I am the eldest child in the family, and with that, comes huge expectations in my culture. Expectations which had then gotten even bigger, because in my culture, going to America is synonymous with success, and this is what my family expected of me. I’ve always had unbridled enthusiasm, a trait I suspect I inherited from my father. The will to persevere in the face of adversity, and to be selfless for my family, are things I carry with me everywhere. For me, joining the Navy has not only reinforced those values, but has also made me stronger mentally. The Navy to me is the ultimate calling. I live to be in the service of others and I am proud of everything the Navy stands for, and I hope to continue to learn and grow in the years to come. I am currently in Guam supporting the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the fight against COVID-19. This assignment has given me the opportunity to use my leadership skills to empower a group of outstanding Sailors in the campaign to get the Theodore Roosevelt back in the fight.” U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Samuel Atuahene, a native of Worcester, Mass., is a laboratory technician with 3rd Medical Battalion, 3rd Marine Logistics Group. He is currently assigned to Task Force Medical on Naval Base Guam. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Staff Sgt. Jordan Gilbert)
