Alia's essay described a recent difficult season (with an infant son) of not having utilities in her home for over a month during the summer of 2014 , and how the experience has caused her to become stronger. During this dark moment, she realized her strengths and how she plan to use that experience to encourage other women veterans to hold on when unexpected times happen.
