I am a 19 year old female. I am one of only 3 active female members in my department of 23 active members. I am a full time college student, part-time pharmacy technician, and a full time volunteer. I have been a firefighter since January of 2009, I know it hasn't been long, but I've seen and learned so much more in this year than I have ever thought possible. But the brotherhood that I have become a part of, I wouldn't give it up for anything in the world.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Firefighting runs in my blood. Several generations on my dad's side of the family have been firefighters for Bellevue, now my dad is the chief, and my brother is also a Lieutenant. It was only a matter of time before the girl of the family joined. I have grown up around firefighting, and it has always been something I've wanted to do. Now that I've joined, I've come to realize that firefighting gives you a sense of fulfillment that I've never experienced before. Also, the trust you feel among your brothers is indescribable.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
there is nothing like working side by side with some of the bravest (or craziest) people you know, and the reaction of the community to see a young woman on the fire scene is unbelievable.
Thats very nice that you like tattoos. My Skin is realy dark so you cant see my tattoos unless i stay out of the sun.lol IF you want to go higher in any job dont get any tats that people can see. If i get a Tattoo that said Love tha God and give money to the needy. People will think am a Gangster Crip. lol Im just saying Looks can tell many things but more negitive will come out. Remmber you are a Hero and people look up to you and we have to dress and talk like Heros that we are Fire Fighters.
