Hilland spoke proudly of her driving force that lead to her successful military career. "I was important to me to be a positive example for my peers," she said. "What you think is what you become. If I didn't believe in that quote, I would not have accomplished my goals. I believe in myself that I would fulfill my dreams. Fast-forward to now, I'm proud and glad to say that I have."
