Expressing her deep-seated aspirations, Marjorie articulated that her foremost goal is not merely to acquire nautical expertise but to cultivate unwavering confidence through this cadetship. With a fervent anticipation for the experience, particularly her upcoming time at sea, she draws inspiration from the narratives of female seafarers who have charted their course through the maritime world.
