25432 OCdt Nathan Williams In Conversation With 25003 Samantha Beckett, 4 Sqn, Captain of the RMC Women’s Soccer Team.
I recently sat down with Samantha Beckett, 4 Sqn, 25003 from Coquitlam, BC. Samantha plays midfield and is captain of the RMC Women’s Soccer Team. Samantha, who’s trade is Navy Logistics, is a fourth year Business Admin major with a minor in English. She comes from a small family of four, including her parents and older brother, as well as the family dog, a miniature beagle. Samantha came to RMC to take advantage of the small classes and personal attention as well as the distinct challenging of pursuing a degree in the military and hopes once graduated to be posted to Esquimalt, BC.
