Hi, I'm 2/C Darby Minton! I am from Chino Hills, California. I am on the Navy Volleyball Team and I am a member of 26th company. I did not have much interest in storm chasing before coming to the Academy, but my interest grew significantly once I declared my major as oceanography and learned more about storms and tornadoes. I am so excited that I get the opportunity to chase tornadoes and learn more about the conditions that they form in. I can't wait to see what I learn from SWIFT. There are many possibilities in the meteorology community that interest me in the future, and I am excited to continue to grow my interest in this subject. I look forward to the road trip and seeing more of the country. I am excited for the lifelong memories that I will always have from this trip!
