Amanda Higgins was a Weapons Systems Officer (“back-seater”) on F15e Strike Eagles where her self-proclaimed role was to “Put warheads on foreheads.”.
Today she’s a Program Manager at Black Rifle Coffee.
I love her quote on dreaming big. I’m not sure that it’s an Amanda original, but I’ve never heard one quite like hers…
“The advice I would give my children is Dream Big. Big dreams don’t cost any more than small ones. Don’t limit yourself.”
The video is worth watching, but a small warning…while this video is uplifting, many will NOT care for the self-proclaimed “twisted sense of humor” found in most other videos put out by Black Rifle Coffee. If that’s the case, just move on knowing that you’re not their target demo.
