Kristi – Hippie with a Gun

Kristi was on page eleven of Twilight when I started our conversation. I found out she was born in Pineville, NC and raised in Charlotte. She was supposed to attend North Meckleburg High but decided on Hopewell High due to their softball team. After high school she attended Penbrook University on a scholarship and quickly realized the small town atmosphere isn’t her style. After coming back home and waitressing for a few months she decided to follow in her best friend’s footsteps and join the Army reserves. I asked her what was the hardest part of basic training, “The gas chamber, my skin was burning, my eyes were burning, snot was coming out my nose as I had to recite the soldier’s creed and walk out slowly” she said smiling. She does plan on getting an art degree from a college before she enlists full time in the Army with aspirations of becoming an art teacher after military retirement. Wanting to be as close to the action as possible she joined the 101st unit where she is a parachute rigger. When she has some free time she enjoys frisbie golf, running, and reading.  Her favorite thing about Birkdale… “Starbucks”.
