Life of a Military Child

Growing up as a military child isn’t always the easiest. Being a military child has its ups and downs, but as a military child you get to experience many things most people will never get the opportunity to experience. The moving aspect of being a military child is bittersweet because although you feel like you’re leaving people behind, you get to explore and travel which is an amazing thing to look back on when you grow up. Moving to Japan wasn’t the easiest, and at times I still want to go back home, but I know this is an opportunity of a lifetime to learn about different cultures. Not only is it interesting but it could also come in handy one day. If I had the choice to not be a military child, I wouldn't choose it.
