At the Battle of Cannae, Hannibal faced an army of Romans three times the size of his own. As the General sat on horseback at the front of his army looking across the battlefield at the Roman forces, one of his captains, whose name was Gisgo, rode up and fearfully commented on the inequality. "There is one thing Gisgo, that you have not noticed" Hannibal replied: "In all that great number of men opposite, not one of them is named Gisgo." That is the kind of man I aspire to be.

I am studying International Affairs at the University of Georgia. I grew up in Doravile, Georgia, a eastern suburb of Atlanta.
